Rehearsal for "Seussical the musical" at Baileys Court Primary School.

There is a real buzz in the air at Bradley Stoke’s Bailey’s Court Primary School as they prepare for this year’s big musical production.

Since early October, a group of dedicated teachers and around 50 children from across Key Stage 2 have been learning lines, practising over 25 songs and getting to know dance routines and stage directions ready for the forthcoming performances. For three nights, starting on 31st March, ‘Seussical‘ will be performed on the stage at Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) and everyone involved is very excited.

The success of last year’s first ever journey into musical theatre, ‘Honk Jr’, meant it didn’t take long to persuade the adults or the children to put on another one this year despite the hours of preparation and rehearsals that would be needed. The support of parents and the amazing efforts and commitment from the children have been astonishing and have meant the whole production team can’t wait for show time.

Seussical is based on the stories of Dr Seuss and tells the story of JoJo, a little boy from Whoville who gets into trouble with his parents for “thinking too many thinks”! The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, The Wickershams, Mayzie and her ‘Bird Girls’ and a whole host of other characters are featured in this fun and lively musical. Horton even has to sit up a tree and look after a very special egg while worrying about his “lost” friend from Whoville!
