About This Event
Ages 8-18, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Six public performances. All experience levels!
Be a part of a fun musical theatre production from start to finish in The Reynolds Auditorium at The Judith Enyeart Reynolds School of the Performing Arts for Springfield Little Theatre! The Summer Series at Springfield Little Theatre produces shows designed to inspire and engage students. Performed by actors ages 4 to 18, each show is open for anyone to participate and attend! These shows are perfect for beginners of any age to get their toes wet and seasoned performers to receive extra practice, as the Summer Series is a “learning lab” for live performance!
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
Performances Thursday, July 20 and Friday, July 21 at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM
