MISSISSAUGA: The students of Liberty Junction Theatre Company Inc. are preparing to take the stage at the Maja Prentice Theatre in Mississauga, where they will be performing Seussical Jr., while raising funds for orphans in Haiti.

Seussical Jr. Is an imaginative musical inspired by the stories of Dr. Seuss. Horton the Elephant finds himself faced with a double challenge- not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and the invisible Whos) from a world of danger, but he must guard an abandoned egg. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.
