While sightseeing, Clara-a beautiful, surprisingly childish young woman-loses her hat in a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine, who returns it to Clara. This brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and intense romance between Clara and Fabrizio. Margaret, extremely protective of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart. As The Light in the Piazza unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to the cultural differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears. Unable to suppress the truth about her daughter, Margaret is forced to reconsider not only Clara’s future, but her own hopes as well.

Shows only allow us to cast 18 & under, however any adult that wants to participate with this event, we can always use meet & greet characters in lobby and/or to help usher, move sets etc.

Synopsis:
A strange and fantastic red-and-white striped top hat appears on an empty stage, full of possibilities. A Boy enters and is drawn toward the magical hat. The Cat in the Hat suddenly materializes! “You’ve got quite a mind for your age,” quips the Cat as he/she begins singing about the power of imagination (”Oh The Thinks You Can Think”). Throughout the song, famous characters are introduced who will figure in the musical: Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz–the bird with the one feather tail, the Whos of Whoville–including the Mayor and his Wife, General Genghis Kahn Schmitz, Mayzie La Bird, the Sour Kangaroo and the Citizens of the Jungle of Nool. The Boy and the Cat use their imaginations to transport everyone to the Jungle of Nool as the adventures begin.
Horton is splashing in a pool when he hears a distant cry for help. (”Horton Hears A Who”). He follows the sound to a tiny spec of dust floating through the air, and realizes that there are people living here, so small they can’t be seen–the tiny citizens of Whoville. Horton vows to help them and places Whoville safely onto a soft clover, just as Sour Kangaroo and her baby arrive. The Sour Kangaroo thinks Horton is crazy for talking to a speck of dust and she and the rest of the Jungle Citizens mock him for his delusions. (”Biggest Blame Fool”). The rascally Wickersham Brothers–a cool group of bad-boy monkeys–join in the fun of teasing Horton. The Cat in the Hat weaves through the number, taking on the persona of a talk show host, who interviews everyone in the jungle, including Mayzie La Bird and her backup group of Bird Girls. The one person who stands up for Horton is his neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, who is not noticed by anyone, most of all Horton. — Project Type: Live Event
