GMHS Does Seussical Proud!

What a special treat it was to watch our GMHS students perform the musical Seussical this weekend! I had the pleasure to attend the performance on opening night this year and enjoyed every minute of the show! It was so well done with all the actors playing their parts with skill and enthusiasm which kept the audience entertained from start to finish! I can’t say enough about how impressed I am every year with these musicals but this year kudos go out to our amazing Director Kerry Donovan Lee, Producer Ally Viera, Musical Director Kaitlin Donovan, Orchestra Director Eric Blackman and everyone else who worked on sets, costumes, choreography and management of the crew who take a script and turned it into a masterpiece! I think they talented professionals are brilliant!

Also amazing is the talent of our students and the dedication of the crew. Their commitment and hard work was amazing and ,as a result, they totally and believably transported the audience into the magical world of Dr. Seuss! The sheer number of students who were in the play was so impressive ,especially for a small school, and every actor whether they played a lead character or were a member of the Company , did an outstanding job. Everyone is to be commended and I am so proud of all of them!

The arts program at GMHS, including the fine and visual arts, band , chorus and theater/drama are a source of great pride for the school, the district and the entire community of Georgetown! We are so fortunate to offer our students opportunities to be part of productions like Seussical and other musical events/performances as well as to take courses as part of their school day that develop and extend their appreciation for the arts, allow them to express their creativity, develop their brains and allow them to take risks! I would match our programs and the work of our teachers with any other school!

I hope you had the chance to see Seussical this weekend and I hope that thoroughly entertained. I hope you also left feeling proud as proud as I did that we have such talented and dedicated students and staff here in Georgetown! It was an amazing production and I already can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year. I want to personally thank EVERYONE who was part of making Seussical The Musical happen. 😊👍
