Eg­gc­it­ing fun

Do you like green eggs and ham? Ex­cel­sior Pri­mary School cer­tainly do!

THERE was a flurry of ex­cite­ment at Ex­cel­sior Pri­mary School last week as stu­dents got set to per­form their first ever mu­si­cal to three sold-out au­di­ences.

Stu­dents per­formed Seussi­cal, The Mu­si­cal Jr. at Can­ning Vale Col­lege on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day night for the school’s an­nual Arts Night.

Based on the chil­dren’s sto­ries by Dr Seuss, the show fea­tured clas­sic char­ac­ters such as The Cat in the Hat and Hor­ton the Ele­phant and other favourites per­formed by the 55 cast mem­bers.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Si­mone Hall said the mu­si­cal had been a ma­jor fo­cus of the school’s year, with au­di­tions tak­ing place back in term 1.

“Stu­dents and staff across the school have been teach­ing and learn­ing chore­og­ra­phy and at­tend­ing re­hearsals, as well as be­ing in­volved with set de­signs, cre­at­ing colour­ful cos­tumes, vi­brant sets and stage prop pieces, while learn­ing about the won­der­ful world through the eyes of Dr Seuss,” she said.

In ad­di­tion to the ed­u­ca­tional ben­e­fits, it show­cased the stu­dents’ great tal­ents, she said.
