The Magic of Dr Seuss Brought to Life
You may just see The Grinch out and about on the streets of Camden this Christmas. Don’t be alarmed though, it’s just Camden Musical Society rehearsing for their first full production, Seussical, which will play in March next year.
Seussical is a Dr Seuss musical, with characters like Horton the Elephant, Cat in the Hat, Mayzie La Bird, Gertrude McFuzz, Jojo from Whoville and of course, The Grinch!
“Camden Musical Society’s production of Seussical will run at Camden Civic Centre from 5th March for three weeks.
Tickets will go on sale shortly, in mid-December. We are hoping that you’ll come along and support us with our exciting, first production” said Melissa Musgrave of Camden Musical Society.
“It’s a family show that is bright and colourful with great music. It brings to life all the wonderful characters of Dr Seuss” Melissa added.
Christmas is the perfect time to introduce The Grinch. Whilst often a disgruntled and scary character, at times he does love the festive season, where you’ll see him in his Santa costume. The Grinch will be played by local Jack Murphy.
With the current pandemic, the musical society will be working under strict COVID restrictions, to ensure that the cast, crew, and audience are all safe. This has brought with it new challenges not seen before.
“We have had to work under COVID restrictions, which means that there’s only a certain amount of people allowed up on stage. What we’ve done to cater for this is that we have got a double cast. Over the three weeks, our cast gets half the performances each. It means a lot of work leading up to that. This makes this production even more special” explained Melissa.
