Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great holiday and you’re ready to come back to some awesome work for Seuss!

We have two full-cast rehearsals this week, one on Tuesday, Jan 2 and one on Thursday, Jan 4. Both rehearsals are in the LLAC Theatre till 4:00.

Please bring your script and a pencil to both rehearsals.

Our goals for this week are:

  1. Get to know the cast members in your “group”
  2. Work on vocals for “Oh the Things You Can Think”, “Oh the Things You Can Think Reprise”, “People Vs. Horton part 2” and “Green Eggs and Ham”

Want to do a little work to make sure you’re extra prepared for the week?

  1. Sing through the above songs (tracks #2, #30, #33, #34) with both the vocal and instrumental tracks. How well do you know the songs without rehearsal help?
  2. Think about what your character would do during these songs? These are full-cast numbers which means there will be a lot of performers on stage at the same time. What can you do with your face, your body, and gestures to make sure your are contributing to the story telling?

Costume requests! Ms. Rendall, our costume director, requested some items be brought to school so we can get started on making your costumes. Before break, she sent some of you home with a letter with more details about what she needs. In case you need help remembering, you can find the details on the music blog here. Bird Girls, Monkeys and Whos, your items are due by January 4. Please make sure any costume item is labeled with your name and class.

See you Tuesday!
The Seuss Production Team
