Berks Christian School, 926 Philadelphia Ave, Birdsboro, in partnership with West-Mont Christian Academy, 873 S. Hanover St., Pottstown, is proud to present “Seussical: The Musical” on March 22 to 24.

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, according to https://www.mtishows.com/seussical.
