Suessical, Jr.

From June 16-30, our lives were pretty much centered around Horton, the Who’s, the Sour Kangaroo, the Wickersham Brothers, and Gertrude McFuzz. No idea who those people are? Think Dr. Suess. “Horton Hears a Who” and “Horton Hatches an Egg”, “Oh the Thinks you can Think”, etc.

Bethany had the privilege of being involved in our music teacher’s Summer Stock Theater production of “Suessical, Jr.” It’s a Broadway musical scaled down for kids. So fun. So crazy. Every day Bethany and about 40 other kids had rehearsals from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Then Bethany practiced at home every night! We listened to the CD in the car and we peeked as she did her choreography, even though she didn’t want us to. We very much looked forward to the performances on June 29 & 30!

The performances were awesome. It was hard to believe that those kids put on that show after just 9 rehearsals! They sang their hearts out, danced until their feet were sore, and had a TON of fun, all while experiencing a positive stage experience. The directors were awesome. As the Who’s would sing:

“We’re Who’s here, We are Who’s here

Grateful for your directing

It’s true, sir, we’re Who’s, Who, sir,

Thanking Mrs. Dean & Dee

We’re thankful little people saying thank you to you

For helping us with our show

You are great, from all of us Who’s, to YOU!”
