Civic Light Opera of South Bay Cities and Executive Producer James A. Blackman, III have announced that they will close out their 2009 season with the Broadway family musical SEUSSICAL by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, based on the works of Dr. Seuss. The musical will run December 2 – 20, 2009.

Leading the cast are Harrison White as The Cat in the Hat and Sam Zeller as Horton the Elephant, with Annie Ramsey as Gertrude McFuzz, Paula Chimene Jiles as Sour Kangaroo, Jessica Gisin as Mayzie LaBird, Gary Lee Reed as General Schmitz, Jason Wenn as Mayor Who, Janet Clark as Mrs. Who, John Lindahl & LJ Benet alternating as as JoJo and Sophia Viggiano & Kyrsti Chavez alternating as Baby Roo.

Stephanie Coltrin will direct the production, Heather Castillo choreographs and Gary Busby provides musical direction.

The story centers around Horton the Elephant’s endeavors to protect the people of Who-ville, who live on a tiny speck of dust, and features characters and scenarios from many of the Dr. Seuss books. 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 in a story that will make you laugh and cry.

Tickets to SEUSSICAL are available by calling 310-372-4477 or online at http://www.civiclightopera.com/.
