Celebrate Family Literacy Day With Seussical The Musical, February 2–11th at the St Jacobs Country Playhouse – Enter To Win

Family Literacy Day 2017

January 27th is Family Literacy Day.  It’s a day to increase awareness about literacy about how reading together as a family is an important activity.  Many families have read Dr. Seuss books and we think another great way to celebrate this day is to get tickets to attend Seussical The Musical together.

Seussical The Musical

This February K-W Musical Productions will be performing Seussical The Musical at The St Jacobs Country Playhouse In Waterloo Ontario.

The Cat in the Hat (Rob Bridel) tells the story of Horton (Max DeNardis), an elephant who
discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo (Logan Brideau), a Who child sent
off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge – not
only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers led by the Sour
Kangaroo (Sarah Nairne), but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the
irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Sarah Willett). Although Horton faces many trials and dangers,
his faithful friend, Gertrude McFuzz (Joanna Guistini-Wilkinson), never gives up on him.
Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and
emerge triumphant.
“I used to read all of these stories to my daughters as children,” says Rob Bridel (Cat in the
Hat). “To play this iconic character is an absolute thrill, especially when my daughter AJ is
assisting in direction. It has come full circle.” One of the youngest cast members, Logan
Brideau loves playing JoJo the Who. “I love JoJo because he is a big thinker and has a great
imagination, like me!” He continues, “He thinks he’s a nobody but then he is the one who
saves the Whos. It shows that anything is possible.”

If this sounds like a show that your family will enjoy, we suggest you grab your tickets to Seussical The Musical at The St Jacobs Country Playhouse before they are gone!
