Mariposa is proud to announce that we are performing Suessical Jr!  The Jr. and Intermediate students have been working hard since the end of January to entertain you.  The show is coming for a 3 night engagement on May 17, 18 and 19, starting at 7pm.  Tickets are $5 each and can be ordered through the school on a first come, first served basis.  Please send payment, show date, number of tickets and your child’s name in an envelope and the tickets will be sent back to you.

 

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza that was written by Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from dangers, and 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 and a trial, the love-struck Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!seussical
