AFTON – The Afton Central School’s Intermediate Choir will present Seussical the Musical, Jr. tonight.
According to Choral Director Michal Westover, the show is the junior version of the Broadway musical based on the collected works of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to generations of American children as Dr. Seuss.
“I think one of the draws is the music is fun,” said Westover, who explained that the selected the show. “There’s a lot of silliness involved.”
The 34 member cast is comprised both of middle school choir members and a contingent of 5th and 6th graders, who play the citizens of Whoville. The show’s young stars have been rehearsing since January, memorizing lines, learning songs and practicing dance sequences for each of the many musical numbers.
