Posted on 04/26/2023
Thing One, The Cat in the Hat, and Thing 2 dancing4/26/2023 - “Seussical the Musical'' is coming to the stage at Parker Middle School next month. This fun, upbeat musical includes a cast of students from Highlander Way Middle School and Parker Middle School. Performances are set for May 4-6 at 6:30 p.m., with a matinee at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 6. Performances will be held at Parker Middle School’s Black Box Theater in the school’s commons. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at https://howellperformingarts.ludus.com/index.php or at the door.

“Seussical” is a journey into the world of Dr. Seuss to revisit beloved characters, including The Cat in the Hat (Cameron Parks), Horton the Elephant (Nathan Walker), Gertrude McFuzz (Mikelle Eddy), Lazy Mayzie (Elyse Cherry), and JoJo (Abby Brown). The Cat in the Hat guides theatergoers into The Jungle of Nool to see Horton, the kind-hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool.

“The cast and crew of ‘Seussical the Musical’ is so excited to bring this wonderful show to the Howell community. ‘Suessical’ is one of the most performed musicals in America because it appeals to the whole family,” said Kelli Falls, “Suessical” director. “It has been so much fun bringing students from both of our middle schools together to produce this outstanding theatrical experience. All of the students have worked so hard to perfect their roles in the show.”

Parker Middle School is located at 400 Wright Road, Howell, MI. Patrons should park on the west side of the building and enter through the school’s main entrance.
