Jill Girard and Keith Smith are delighted to present Peoples Theatre’s 2nd production of this year, as always bringing children, parents and all those with a love of joy and laughter, together for a rollicking theatre experience with the fabulous Broadway show Seussical the Musical Jr.
Seussical the Musical Jr. runs through the winter school holidays, with the final performance on Sunday, 30th July 2023.
Based on the much-loved Dr Seuss books, Seussical Jr draws its characters from a number of books. It is filled with non-stop music, laughter and feel-good fun.
Dr Seuss has been a children’s favourite author for over 60 years and is loved for his use of language, rhyme and humor. The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham and many more have been the stepping stones to reading for many children and introduced them to a wonderful range of characters and positive concepts.
“Oh the thinks you can think! Think and wonder and think!”
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” – Dr Seuss”
“You’re off to great places. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting… so get on your way!”
“Why fit in when you’re born to stand out!”
These are just a few of the wonderful quotes from Dr Seuss, illustrating the importance of reading and gaining knowledge to equip the younger generations with the skills to fulfill their dreams and aspirations in life.
Designer Grant Knottenbelt will be bringing Dr Seuss’s unmistakable, quirky pages to stage with his set design. Costumes done by Merry Whillier, Sean McGrath and additional costumes by Luciano Zuppa. Ian Mills is the Choreographer and Coenraad Rall is Musical Director.
