The Cat In The Hat - The essence of mischief, fun, and imagination. The Cat stirs things up, causes trouble, but always sets things right again. As the host and emcee of the evening, the Cat creates the story for the show alongside JoJo, improvising and interacting with the audience along the way. The actor cast as the Cat will play many additional roles, including General Genghis Kahn Schmitz, Judge Yertle the Turtle, Vlad Vladikoff, and more.
JoJo (Age 8-12) - A Who and the only child of the mayor and his wife. He is a “Thinker” – a smart child with a wild imagination, which happens to get him into constant trouble. By the end of the show, he learns what it means to be a responsible member of his world, using the power and possibilities of his own "Thinks."
Horton The Elephant - A gentle, big-hearted citizen of the Jungle of Nool. He is imaginative and receptive to the world around him. He is very un-self-conscious, and always tries to do the right thing for his friends. Horton's view of the world never changes–he believes in its goodness, no matter what.
Gertrude McFuzz - A bird and citizen of the Jungle of Nool. The not-so-proud owner of a "one-feather tail," who happens to be in love with Horton the Elephant. Very self-conscious, shy, and nervous at first, she grows into a kind and caring protector.
Mayzie La Bird - A self-centered, vain citizen of the Jungle of Nool. She manipulates anyone she can (especially Horton) into doing what she wants. But Mayzie isn't all bad. In her own way, she discovers the power of generosity over the course of the show.
Sour Kangaroo - A proud mother to a young kangaroo and citizen of the Jungle of Nool. She isn't really sour at all. She's just got a lot of attitude. She's loud, brassy, and a lot of fun.
Mr. Mayor - The Mayor of Whoville and JoJo’s Dad. He and his wife try hard to raise a unique child in a difficult world.
Mrs. Mayor - Mr. Mayor's Wife and JoJo's Mom. She and her husband try hard to raise a unique child in a difficult world.
Wickersham Brothers - Three Monkey Brothers and citizens of the Jungle of Nool. These are not bad guys! They're simply a lot like kids who tease, play pranks, and get a kick out of making mischief, although often at others' expense. The actors cast as Wickersham Brothers will play several other roles throughout the show, including Whos, Cadets, and Hunters.
Bird Girls - Three sassy birds and citizens of the Jungle of Nool. A clique of pretty, confident "back-up" birds that often act as storytellers, carrying the show along where the Cat left off. The actors cast as Bird Girls will play several other roles throughout the show, including Cadets, Fish, and Hunches.
