2016 - Seussical

Past Shows > 1994 - today

EMS bring all your favourite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo to Enniscorthy audiences this year. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat (Dylan Walsh) tells the story of Horton (Paul Walsh) , an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo (Eryn Buckley), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." 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 to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Thérèse Canavan Bolger). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Emily Brazzill) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
