SHERBURNE – Sherburne Music Theater Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary. In celebration of their 40 years of fabulous fun, they are presenting “Seussical the Musical” Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Sherburne-Earlville high school auditorium.
This marvelous show combines 13 of Dr. Seuss’ works in a fanstastical, magical, musical extravaganza. Notable composers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life in Seussical all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and the Whos of Whoville. These classic, colorful tales are seamlessly brought together by JoJo, a young boy and “thinker of strange and wonderful thinks.” As each story unfolds you will marvel at how relevant and profound Seuss’s subtle themes are, making this musical one that appeals to all ages. The score emerges as a Seussian mix of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk.
