Some feedback…

“Thank you very much for such an amazing production of Seussical! We were all so impressed, the kids did an amazing job, so thanks to you, Ryan and Rob for all your time and effort. You did a brilliant job! image

“Now that I have had time to just think about the show, I wanted to repeat my
congratulations. It is no small feat to get such a level of consistent high standard
from one pre 16 age group, but from a cast covering such an age range it
was pretty amazing. I loved the fact that the ‘little people’ showed the same
level of stage discipline as the older ones.”

“It is so good to see the Young Theatre Royal going from strength to strength. We are sure this is important not just for the Theatre but for the City and, of course, the young people themselves.”

“There is a large groundswell of opinion that we are very lucky that our children can be a part of your productions.”

Supporters were treated to a mini preview of Theatre Royal Winchester’s Summer Youth Theatre Musical Seussical this week. Seussical is a colourful musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty based on the books of Dr Seuss. The young people between the ages of 8-16 performed two numbers on stage to a supportive crowd.

The show is directed by me, with choreography by Ryan Grimshaw and Musical Direction by Robert Rayner. The colourful design by Hayley Spicer with costumes made by the very talented Arts University Bournemouth Students and puppets by Stuff and Nonsense with Holly Miller.

Our young people absolutely delivered the goods! The two songs were electric and true to the spirit of the production highlighting everything you would want and expect from a show that includes characters from the wonderful world of Dr Seuss, whilst promising unexpected delights.4ImDi80nQ-WItwkMhvdVLZAVrY4Y6wFjuBYSM6ZE0g4
