It’s an old story. Boy and girl meet giant talking cat with a stovepipe hat.
Throw in an elephant with a God complex and a curmudgeonly Christmas hater, and hijinks ensue.
Add music and you have the recipe for a Broadway show. That’s how “Seussical,” a merry mix-up of some of the most memorable characters from beloved Dr. Seuss stories, came to be.
The show is perfect for a high school production. The themes are as family-friendly as little Cindy Lou Who, who was not more than two.
At the same time, the Broadway-quality music is the green eggs and ham, giving student singers and musicians room to try new things and stretch beyond more familiar fare.
The Whovillian frolic is coming to the Philipsburg-Osceola Area High School stage.
The Mountie thespians will present their production Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $5. They can be purchased in advance from the school, Conklin’s Corner Antique and Gift Barn, and Sharon and Kelly’s Beauty Shop on Front Street.
Come out and support the arts and relive stories from your childhood. Don’t be a Grinch.
