WOLFEBORO — The Village Players will be presenting Seussical the Musical in Wolfeboro for two weekends beginning Friday and Saturday, November 14-15 and November 21-22 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, November 16 and 23 at 2 p.m.
Based on many of the beloved works of Dr. Seuss, this family-friendly show brings to life the simple-yet-profound themes that Seuss was famous for: caring for others, being true to yourself, and standing up for what's right. Center Harbor's Kathleen Hill directs the show. The Cat in the Hat guides the audience through the story of reliable old Horton the Elephant. Horton finds himself in the heap of trouble when he tries to save his invisible new friends, Jojo and the rest of the Whos including Lissa Mascio and Lea Mascio of Belmont. His troubles increase exponentially when the care-free-but-fabulous Mayzie Le Bird convinces him to sit on her egg for 'just a little while.' Along the way he must face the ne'er do well Wickershams including Sandwich's Danny Catalano and Meredith's Chris Debiase, the Sour Kangaroo and her equally sour Baby Kangaroo, the dastardly Black Bottomed Eagle, Vlad Vladicov and some very sassy Bird Girls featuring Center Harbor's Jeanne Puglisi among them. Through it all the plain-tailed, lovesick Gertrude McFuzz does everything she can to help Horton in hopes that he will finally notice her.
Tickets are available at Black's on Main Street, or by going to the Village Players website at www.village-players.com.
