Just one short week ago, Seussical the musical premiered at Kennedy High School. It was a fantastic show and even though we have a brand new director, we all had a ball! Seussical is a story based off of the books by Dr. Seuss. In Seussical the books, Horton Hears A Who, I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat and The Hat, Oh the Thinks You Can Think, and others, are put together to make one large story. They transformed the stage to a wonder world that all kids could enjoy!
Performing as the mayor of Whoville, may seem like a “tiny” role (get it? Tiny!), but it was still so much fun! I love performing! Whether it’s plays, musicals, or singing, I love being involved. The feeling of everyone focused on you and going along with a story that you are portraying, being watched and applauded by so many people can be so invigorating. Being in the cast of Seussical was no different and I’m so sad it’s all over! The memory of being the mayor of Whoville will always stick with me. Whether I end up staring on broad way or just sitting in a cubical, I can’t ever forget all the fantastic times I had with the cast.
Although performing with a cast can be very fun, it’s also extremely rewarding to perform by yourself! I hate learning new French and Italian songs, but when it comes time to perform, all the work is worth it! Plus it so great knowing you did it all by yourself, knowing you didn’t have to depend on someone or worry about not getting the lead. If there is anyone reading this who has never been given the chance to perform, I strongly encourage you to get out there and show people what you can do! It will all be worth it in the end!( 319 words)
