The Other Half of My Busy Day

I went to Seussical the Musical. It was way fun! I was kind of wary at first, but I ended up loving it! Pictures hopefully to follow, but it was definitely worth going to. For those of you who don't know, the story line goes as follows:

Based on the beloved characters and stories of Dr.Seuss, this musical incorporates elements from at least 15 Dr.Seuss books and includes appearances by many of his most famous characters. Seussical the Musical follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant who one day hears voices coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe! And upon this tiny planet live a tiny raceof creatures known as Whos! Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing insomething he cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist.
Meanwhile, the citizens of Who are having some adventures of their own, including a war over which side of the bread gets buttered. Jojo, the smallest child in the city of Who, parallels Horton's journey as he is ostracized for the unpopular act of thinking -- an activity not encouraged by the parents and teachers of Whosville. But in spite of these obstacles, Jojo and Horton attempt to do what they think is right, and together they sing the duet "Alone in the Universe." However, their path will not be easy. Horton is sold to the Circus McGurkus and eventually goes on trial before Judge Yertle the Turtle before the other animals of the jungle come to understand, as Horton has always known, that "a person's a person, no matter how small."

Anyway, it is a way cute play and one I would absolutely see again
