Hamilton Central Masquers Presents: “Seussical”
Seussical the Musical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza, featuring all of your favorite characters from one of the most performed shows in America!
The show includes over fifty students at Hamilton Central, from grades 3-12, which is one of the largest casts to perform a Masquers musical in man years. The cast features Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant (played by Harry Rosbrook), The Cat in the Hat (Naomi Meyers), Gertrude McFuzz (Emilija Morkevicius), Mayzie La Bird (Chloe Filipowicz) and a child with a big imagination – Jojo (Cora Loranty). The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. Seussical is fun for the whole family!
