King’s Ely Junior pupils wow families with production of Seussical the Musical

Tuesday 13 March 2018

There were hoots of laughter and standing ovations when King’s Ely Junior students staged family favourite musical Seussical.

Hundreds of people descended on King’s Ely’s Hayward Theatre for the sell-out Dr. Seuss inspired production on 9-10 March. Pupils in Years 5 to 8 starred in the all singing, all dancing show, which was directed by Nick Huntington, with musical direction by Neil Porter-Thaw and choreography by Natasha Hobbs.

Director of Drama and Theatre at King’s Ely, Nick Huntington, was overwhelmed with the show’s success. He said: “The standing ovations at the end of each performance showed just how much people were wowed. This show was a lot of work with over 40 students in the cast, over 80 in the crew and well over 100 hours of rehearsal time. Seussical is one of the most loved and performed school/college shows in America, and you can understand why. It’s totally feel good stuff, comprising of zany characters and catchy Broadway music. Our very talented cast and crew just happened to pull off one of the most ambitious productions to date with such brilliance and professionalism. I could not be prouder of them.”
