NAPILI – A cast of 37 Maui Preparatory Academy Middle and Upper School students, directed by Vania Jerome, will present “Seussical Jr.” on the Maui Prep campus in Napili.

This fun, family-friendly musical takes you into the world of Dr. Seuss, where the Cat in the Hat leads the audience through the adventures of Horton the Elephant hatching the egg and finding the Who’s dust speck!

Cat in the Hat striped hats will be available for purchase for audience participation in the show.

Performances are slated for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 20-21, at 6:30 p.m. All tickets are $10 and may be purchased from any cast member or at the Maui Prep office; call 665-9966.

“Seussical Jr.” features music by Stephen Flaherty and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. The book by Ahrens and Flaherty was co-conceived with Eric Idle, based on the works of Dr. Seuss. The music was supervised, adapted and produced by Bryan Louiselle.

“Seussical Jr.” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, which supplied all authorized performance materials.
