Dr. Seuss would have been proud. The Lake Placid Middle High School pulled off a successful production of “Seussical,” which was held March 12, 13 and 14, and it required a Herculean effort by faculty, staff, parents — and of course the students.
Besides a cast of more than 30 students from the middle/ high school, there were more than 40 students from grades 4 through 8 who played the role of “The Whos.” That’s a cast of more than 70 students. A round of applause goes out to directors Kimberly Weems and Thomas Dodd for being able to organize and direct such a large cast. Kudos to Michela Boschetto who did the choreography and Kent Streed who was in charge of putting together the delightful costumes. Great job by all those not mentioned.
Also a great job by the entire school district to organize children from all those grades. Certainly their experience of being part of such a large-scale production will be a life-time memory.
The community also should be congratulated for their support of “Seussical.” Each performance packed the auditorium. And the standing ovations probably gave the students a great thrill and sense of accomplishment.
Everyone who was involved in the production of “Seussical” should take a moment to pat themselves on the back.
So, in the spirit of Dr. Seuss, it’s time to let loose; after the applause, and some of this and some of that; Seuss would certainly give a pat, yes, right on the back, straight from the cat in the hat; and even if you weren’t in the crowd, let your applause ring nice and loud. It was a performance for all to be proud.
