an extravagant show of music, dance and stage design with morals about a lovable elephant named Horton who finds himself taking care of an invisible world of Whos. discovering their world in a speck of dust. since other creatures don't see what Horton believes, they think he's crazy, knowing elephants have very good thinking abilities and seldom make a mistake. but this one is major! so these creatures teamed up against him for they will be in danger of Horton's misleading information.
Horton's tale teaches us to be kind, to love and to believe in the possibilities of our imagination. Repertory Philippines incorporates bright costumes, stage design, music and grandiose choreography that will let us imagine the world that connected Horton and the Whos.
