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.
 

Stage Two

Our Stage Two shows are perfect for younger students, and students looking for a less demanding theatre experience. These shows have been carefully selected for their ensemble cast and every child enrolled will play a meaningful part in the production's success. With a shorter rehearsal period and less demanding performance run, these shows are great for students who aren't able to commit to the commitment of a Main Stage production.
