Seussical the Musical--AWESOME!

On Friday and Saturday, October 27 - 28, 2017, theatre arts teacher Rebecca Craig's sixty five cast and crew members brought to life on the Moore Square Magnet Middle School gymnasium stage many of our beloved Dr. Seuss characters in their production of Seussical, Jr. The shows included a Friday and Saturday evening performance and a Saturday afternoon matinee to audiences of all ages. Working and practicing since July, under the direction of Ms. Craig and with lots of assistance from staff member Olivia Robinette, the students entertained the crowd with lots of amusing dialogue and upbeat music and dance numbers from an assortment of colorful characters including the Cat in the Hat, Horton the elephant, Mayzie La Bird, Gertrude McFuzz, and little Jojo, a Who. The Moore Square Middle School students, onstage and behind the scenes, delivered a heart-warming and entertaining story of the triumph of friendship and a message of mutual respect: “A person's a person, no matter how small!” It was an awesome show!
