It’s the story of a young girl named JoJo who connects with the most unlikest of heros, a large elephant named Horton. While we follow the difficulties Horton faces at attempting to tell the tale of group of people called The Whos, our play focusses on JoJo and her efforts to save her home. The show’s main message, A Person’s A Person No Matter How Small, resonates throughout. Throughout the story we are treated to some of Seuss’s most treasured characters: Purple Kangaroo, The Whos of Whoville, The Grinch, Yertle the Turtle, Gertrude the bird, Horton the elephant and of course our narrator The Cat in the Hat.
