About the Show

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat int he Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard and abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately the powers of friendship, loyalty and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
