The Lawton Community Theatre presents Seussical, the Musical with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, and music by Stephen Flaherty. This LCT production is sponsored by EZ Go Foods and is underwritten by the Oklahoma Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Arts for All, Inc. Based on the beloved characters and stories of Dr. Seuss, Seussical follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant who one day hears voices coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe! And upon this tiny planet, live a tiny race of creatures known as Whos. Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing in something he cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist. Meanwhile, the citizens of Who are having some adventures of their own as the clover on which they live is tossed around the universe. Jojo, the Mayor's son, parallels Horton's journey as he is ostracized for the unpopular act of thinking--an activity not encouraged by the parents and teachers of Whoville. But in spite of these obstacles, Jojo and Horton attempt to do what they think is right. Horton finds himself sitting on an egg for months, is sold to the circus, and eventually goes on trial before the other animals of the jungle come to understand, as Horton has always known, that "a person's a person, no matter how small." Seussical is directed by Cynthia Kent. Musical Director is Linda Chapman and Choreographer is James Brock. This two-hour musical is recommended for adults and children 5 and older. Performances are at the John Denney Playhouse, 1316 NW Bell Avenue, Lawton on October 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 2008. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 PM and Sunday matinees are at 2 PM. Tickets are $20, $18, and $14 and may be reserved by calling (580) 355-1600. As a special treat, children will have the opportunity to have Breakfast With the Cat in the Hat or Tea With the Cat in the Hat on Saturdays, October 4 and 11.
