National Children’s Theatre presents


by arrangement with DALRO (Pty) Limited

Everybody loves a good Dr. Seuss story! This is why the young and the young-at-heart should plan to join NCT to think some THINKS and enjoy the wonderful world of SEUSSICAL Jr

The story, narrated in part by the whimsical Cat in the Hat, centers on Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge. Not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo and all the invisible Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird!

Themes: Honesty. Loyalty. Friendship. Trust.

This is family entertainment at its very best in our charming outdoor theatre, Imagination Theatre.

Suitable for children age 5 and up.
