More from Marquita Griffin of the Fort Bend Herald…
“In a time when it is hard to find wholesome entertainment for my sons, the George Ranch High School theater department reminded me there are options available in my community.
The set was breathtakingly vibrant and clever.
The story was filled with humor, inspiration and serious lessons that are quite relevant today.
The music was amazing, and those singing voices were, hands down, phenomenal.
To each member of the talented cast: Continue your works. You not only entertained us, you made us proud.
And to the director, L Jay Endemeyer: I take my hat off to you, sir, for so many reasons.
But I will keep it simple: I am grateful for you”

From MTI Website:
“Now one of the most performed shows in America,Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tonywinners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island,Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.”
