NHS Drama Club presents Seussical the Musical

The NHS Drama Club is very excited to present a mashup of some of literature’s most creative, inventive, and fun stories…SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL. The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, the residents of Whoville, Amazing Mayzie, Gertrude McFuzz, Yertle the Turtle, the Grinch himself and dozens of other classic Seuss characters jump off the page in this non-stop celebration of friendship, dedication, and integrity. Its wall-to-wall music and imagination come to life with colors, movement, and laughs…a fitting springtime musical feast for families. Over 90 NHS students have been working feverishly since late January to bring Dr. Seuss’s two-dimensional characters and worlds to three-dimensional life. Join The Cat in the Hat as he weaves multiple stories together in a roller coaster of entertainment. Come and see SEUSSICAL at Northville, April 27 and 28 at 7pm, and April 29 at 2pm and 7pm.
