Seussical

Friendswood High School Theatre’s production of Seussical the Musical opens on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the FHS Myrlene Kennedy Auditorium.

The show follows an award-winning musical written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty which adapts numerous famous Dr. Seuss books including “The Cat in the Hat” and “Horton Hears a Who!” into one cohesive tale.

“The story explores and expresses timeless human themes of family and friendship, loyalty and generosity, and the power and inspiration of imagination,” Kathy Powdrell, FHS theatre director, said. “I believe that is the best message I can give to my students and our community at this time.”

The cast includes Eric Jensen as The Cat, Michael Donovan as Horton, Taylor Greny as Gertrude, Isabella Morrison as Maize the Lazy Bird and Gracen McGregor as JOJO. Cast members will be available for a photo opportunity in the lobby immediately following each of the shows.

Additional shows will take place on Sept. 16 at 2:30 p.m., Sept. 21 and 22 at 7:00 p.m., and Sept. 23 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased at the door for $15. Only cash will be accepted. The box office opens 60 minutes before each show and the doors open 30 minutes before each show.

“Don't miss this magical show,” Powdrell said.
