It’s all because of JoJo’s “thinks” that The Cat in the Hat comes to life in “Seussical the Musical.” The Cat creates a “Seussian” world and characters around himself and JoJo (Alaina Lenz pictured with cast), then tells a story about someone as imaginative as JoJo: Horton the Elephant. The main story of the musical centers around that of “Horton Hears a Who,” which even includes JoJo as the child of the Mayor of Who-ville. (Photos by Correne Martin)

Horton the Elephant, portrayed by Dylan Skime, discovers a speck of dust, places it on a soft clover. He discovers that the speck is actually a microscopic planet populated by creatures called Whos, citizens of Who-ville. The Whos are on the brink of war and their entire population of Truffula Trees has been cut down. The Whos thank Horton for his protection, and he agrees to guard their planet.

“Oh the Places You’ll Go” with beloved Dr. Seuss characters The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant and more during Prairie du Chien High School’s production of “Seussical the Musical” Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9-10. This year, there will be three shows: 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and an 11 a.m. matinee Saturday. 

Tickets to attend a show in the brand new high school auditorium are available for purchase in advance at the high school, or at the door.

This family-friendly, delightful journey imagined by Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, is a whimsical ride through the land of Seuss, featuring the tall and the small. Join the mischievous narrator, The Cat in the Hat, as Horton, JoJo and Gertrude embark on a zany and heartfelt adventure to discover the power of friendship, community and imagination.

The school will also offer a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 9 to 10:30 a.m., where diners may catch a glimpse of The Cat in the Hat. There is a fee for the meal as well, though children 4 and under eat for free.
