Hermiston High School is thrilled to perform Seussical, a musical based on the works of Dr. Seuss. Evening performances are scheduled for February 9, 10, 16, and 17, at 7 p.m., and a matinee performance will be held on February 18, at 2 p.m.

All performances take place in the high school auditorium. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the high school bookkeeping office. Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for adults, and $8 for senior citizens 65 years and older with ID.

Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and a little girl with a big imagination – Jojo.

In Seussical, The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos. Horton faces a double challenge. Not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg 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 triumphantly.

Seussical is suitable for the entire family. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see your favorite Dr. Seuss’ characters.
