Published 10:15 am Friday, March 22, 2019

Conkwright Elementary School students are bringing the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant and other Seuss favorites to life this week with their production of “Seussical KIDS.”

“Seussical KIDS,” co-conceived by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle, combines Dr. Seuss tales and tails using many musical styles — ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel and R&B to funk — as colorful as the classic books, according to a news release.

Conkwright presents “Seussical KIDS” through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, one of the world’s leading theatrical licensing agencies.
