Milton Hershey School to Present “Seussical”
Milton Hershey School will present “Seussical,” a musical stage adaptation of the works of the children’s book author Dr. Seuss, during Spring Family Weekend in the Memorial Hall Auditorium. MHS welcomes the community to attend one of four free public performances that will be presented on Thursday, May 10 at 7 p.m.; Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, May 12 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
“Seussical” was created for the stage by Tony Award winners lyricist Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty. The story lovingly brings to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Amazing Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination—Jojo. The colorful characters transport the audience from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The production incorporates themes from Seuss’ books such as having an open mind, helping friends, and respecting others—values embraced by Milton Hershey School. Musical selections include, “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think” and “It’s Possible.”
Those attending are reminded that the location of this year’s spring musical, Memorial Hall (901 Homestead Lane), is different from the previous year. Tickets are free and available through an online ticketing system. Because seating is limited, securing tickets in advanced is encouraged.
