5th Grade Musical:

ATTENTION 5th GRADE: OOH, AHH, the Winningest Walloping Waltzing Whiz-zinger production is coming! Our students will begin working on the musical production Seussical™ KIDS. Performing in a musical is an experience that students will remember for the rest of their lives.

 

Seussical™ KIDS begins with a young boy named JoJo who conjures up the Cat in the Hat with his powerful imagination and is whisked to the Jungle of Nool for a fantastical adventure. There JoJo learns of the plight of the tiny citizens of Whoville, who live on a planet the size of a speck of dust. Their sole protector is Horton the Elephant, who is the only one with large and sensitive enough ears to hear them bipping and beeping and playing their oompahs. The small world is threatened by Sour Kangaroo and the Wickersham Brothers, who in disbelief that a world could be so small, try to steal the dust-speck so they can cast it into a vat of Beezle-Nut oil. During all of this drama, Horton has not noticed that he has an admirer, Gertrude McFuzz. She blames his indifference on her one-feather short tail and endeavors to find a way to change her looks. Meanwhile, Horton’s friend, Mayzie LaBird, is bored of perching on her nest, and convinces the watchful elephant to sit on her egg so she can take a vacation. The Cat follows all of these storylines and finally casts the boy into his own as the irresponsible son of Mr. and Mrs. Mayor of Whoville, JoJo, who ultimately saves his whole tiny world with one big, imaginative “think.”

 

All 5th grade students will be performing in the production. Some students will get to have the opportunity to be one of the special characters in the show. Auditions will take place in 3 weeks in the music room. Students will be selected on speaking clearly, stage presence, expression and concentration. Letters about the performance will be sent home soon. Keep an eye out!
