Can I have a proud mum moment!????? ……
We had such a great time at Skye’s opening night last night! The Roo Theatre was packed out … and it was so exciting for Skye to be involved in such a fun and colourful pantomime as her first musical theatre perfomance outside of school. Gav wants to go again tonight!!! LOL! (We do have tickets for closing night!)
I know … I know … we are rather biased parents … but it was such a thrill to see Skye enjoying herself so much. The whole cast did a fantastic job … and even though there was a slight “mal-function” with Skye’s mic (no sound!!!) in the opening number … by her second appearance on the stage … all was ok! The Cat … now … he was HILARIOUS – with fantastic energy and such expression! We were absolutely amazed at the quality of the voices … particularly for a cast of such young actors! Horton the Elephant was so adorable … and had a wonderful voice. Jojo was so confident and had a lovely young voice. Mayzie La Bird … such a professional … with a strong quality to her singing. But … to be honest … (or more accurately … to be totally biased) Gertrude McFuzz was such a shy, sweet, compassionate and huggable character … with a slightly husky but gorgeous tone to her voice! (Only her parents & the director & vocal coach knew that she was suffering from a cold!) And … our hearts ached for her when she was trying to get Horton’s attention in “Notice me Horton”!
We thoroughly enjoyed the energy, fun, colour & the lively and professional performances of THE WHOLE CAST!!! And … we can’t wait to see it all again! Skye’s grandma heard a “review” on the local ABC radio this morning … and they commented on the professional standard of the young voices! So … I guess I am biased … but I thought it all was FANTASTIC!!! And … such a thrill to see Skye so happy and excited! She loved every minute of it!
I am sure there are still tickets on sale at the door … if you would like to see Seussical. Take the kids … they will love it!
