Children’s theatre is my absolute best and who doesn’t love Dr Seuss? Don’t answer, I just couldn’t bare the thought of a world where people do not like Dr Seuss. Well, at least I don’t have to think about that because Seussical Jr the musical is coming to the Joburg Peoples Theatre!
Seussical JR. The Musical
Seussical Jr the musical runs through the school holidays, with the final performance on Sunday, 28th April 2019. The best part about it is that the fun and entertainment is for young and old. Miss T was a few months old when we took her and Miss K to watch a show at the Peoples Theatre in the Johannesburg theatre complex. Seriously, all ages are welcomed, even babies.
It’s brilliant. You don’t need to stress out if the kids are not quiet as the interaction with the children and the actors is the right amount. I find it just the right volume and noise level too for Miss K who can get overwhelmed by too much noise. See … everyone’s a winner.
What is this show: Seussical Jr?
The show is based, as you figured, on the Dr Seuss books. Dr Seuss has been a children’s favourite author for over 60 years and is loved for his use of language, rhyme and humour. The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham and many more have been the stepping stones to reading for many children and introduced them to a wonderful range of characters and positive concepts. Throw in some singing and dancing as well as great costumes, and you are good to go.
“Oh the thinks you can think! Think and wonder and think!”
“It is better to know how to learn than to know!”
“You’re off to great places. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting… so get on your way!”
“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes closed!”
“Why fit in when you born to stand out!”
These are just a few of the wonderful quotes from Dr Seuss. They perfectly illustrate the importance of reading and gaining knowledge to equip the younger generations with the skills they need to fulfill their dreams and aspirations in life.
