The talented cast and crew behind Seussical
From 4 to 6 April 2016, BISP presented its 2016 production: ‘Seussical’.
Based on the works of children’s author Dr Seuss, the overarching plot of the show mirrors that of ‘Horton Hears a Who!’, centering on Horton the Elephant’s endeavors to protect the people of Who-ville, who live on a tiny speck of dust.
It also features characters and scenarios from many other Seuss books, including the Butter Side Uppers/Downers from The Butter Battle Book, Gertrude McFuzz, and, in addition to a music number based on its original story, The Cat in the Hat also acts as “your host and MC” – acting variously as a narrator, an outside observer, and a devil’s advocate throughout the show, and briefly leaping into the action on several occasions to create conflict and keep the story moving.
“Wow – what a production!” says Head of Performing Arts Paulette Wilkinson. “Fantastic singing, dancing and wonderful “Seuss” smiles. A huge team effort both on and off stage, behind stage and in the lighting box.
“The band were amazing – Horton’s elephant sound was something else! The production team – Danni, Melissa, Ms Baker and Mrs Wilkinson are immensely proud of everyone on stage – their dedication and sense of fun were clear to all.”
