Favorite Dr. Seuss characters appear in ‘Seussical,’ opening Friday

INDIANAPOLIS — Footlite Musicals will open the 14-performance run of its holiday offering of its 57th season, “Seussical,” Friday with additional performances Saturday, Sunday, Nov. 23, 24, 25, 29 and 30, and Dec. 1, 2 , 6, 7, 8 and 9 at the Hedback Community Theater, 1847 North Alabama St., Indianapolis. Curtain times for the performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. for the two Sunday matinees.

Before the Nov. 25 performance, Footlite will host a “Green Eggs and Ham” Brunch at noon.

An event package, including the brunch, a ticket to that afternoon’s matinee, a commemorative photo in a photo booth, story time with the cast and many other fun activities, is available by going online and ordering.

Based on the works of Dr. Seuss, “Seussical” is a musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, with music by Flaherty and lyrics by Ahrens.

Flaherty was nominated for a 2001 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music for his work on the musical.

All of the favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz and Jojo, a little boy with a big imagination, have lovingly been brought to life in this musical for the entire family.

The story centers around Horton, who finds himself faced with a double challenge — not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by Mayzie La Bird.

Admission for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday performances is $20 for all seats and $10 for the Thursday performances. Footlite members receive a $5 discount of their individual ticket price. All seats are reserved, and reservations may be made by calling the Footlite box office at (317) 926-6630 or making them online at Footlite’s web site, www.footlite.org.

Information on becoming a member of Footlite may also be obtained by visiting Footlite’s web site or calling the box office number.
