Girton Grammar lets the cat out of the hat

THERE is nothing disputable about Seussical the Musical.

Girton Grammar’s junior school students will this week bring to life some of the most iconic characters in children’s literature.

The musical, based on the books by renowned author Dr Seuss, will be performed at The Capital Theatre on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Girton headmaster Matthew Maruff said the students had been “having a ball” while rehearsing over the last couple of months.

“This whacky production brings life to a cast of all-time favourite characters from the much-loved Dr Seuss children’s books,” he said.

“The children have loved being completely lost in a world of colourful fantasy, with some hilarious impromptu moments.

“They have worked hard and will no doubt put on a great show but, importantly, they have had a huge amount of fun along the way.”

On Monday, the students took part in a full dress rehearsal ahead of opening night.

The shows take audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

Mr Maruff said audiences would be dazzled by the costumes, sound and lighting in a “musical extravaganza like no other”.

“This show has given our students an opportunity to develop a sense of confidence and an avenue for creative expression,” he said.

“It has also given them permission to be silly with perfect reason, which they have loved.”
