SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL @ UCalgary Operetta

Music By Stephen Flaherty 
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens 
Book by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens 
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss 
Directed by Colleen Whidden
Choreographed by Jocelyn Hoover
Produced by Byron Redd


Performances: May 23 - Jun 1

Now one of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible 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. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.

Tickets are $17 including service fee. Seating is general admission so buy your own tickets and meet up at the show. For more information go to UCalgary Operetta

    re wheelchair seating.. I was instructed to buy general seating tickets and to get there early... wheelchair section is over to the side toward the back. We'll have to get there really really early because it is highly preferable that Ian is not within reach of any strangers :-0 We'll see what happens...

    Just got back from Hairspray, which started quite late so good thing didn't try to take in Balletleullia too! Very please with Hairspray, they did a good job! Ian also liked it and also didn't pull any stunts, thank goodness! Once again Ian seemed to rate the evil older woman very highly, I think he's developing a thing for villanesses!

    I see that they are sold out for the Friday night. I've emailed about wheelchair seating for Saturday, but also asked for the matinee the following Saturday if they can't accommodate for this performance.

      Ok - let me know what you decide to do.

      Note -this event is scheduled for us to go SATURDAY night, not FRIDAY. They've just started advertsing so expect to expect tickets to start selling out soon.

    date looks ok, I'll have to confirm with the grouphome that someone is available and we will need wheelchair seating... are you ok with arranging that or do you want me to?
