Laurel High School students are nearing the end of their rehearsals for the upcoming musical “Suessical” on Nov. 21 and 22.

“Suessical” follows some of Dr. Seuss’ most beloved stories, including “Cat in the Hat,” “Horton Hears a Who” and “Horton Hatches an Egg.”

There will be lots of singing, dancing and fun featuring some of the late author’s most wellknown characters.

Director Rhonda Burghardt said auditions were held on Sept. 23 and there are 50 LHS students involved in the show. “This is the 22nd year we have held a musical at LHS,” she said.

Denise Hammer has been the assistant director for 16 of those years and Sherry Sauskojus designed the colorful backdrop and instructed the kids on painting. Both Hammer and Sauskojus are in charge of the sets and props and Burghardt said “the students have been participating in work parties on weekends in preparation for the show.”

The performance are Thursday Nov. 21 and Friday Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. at the LHS auditorium. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for students.
