This musical transports audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus. Meanwhile, the Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a clover with a speck of dust containing a tiny world with people called the Whos. Horton takes on the responsibility to protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers. Horton must also guard an abandoned egg that has been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie LaBird. Although Horton faces ridicule and danger, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Thus, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphantly!
