Trinity Catholic College was packed on Thursday afternoon for the extravagant and captivating Seussical the Musical.
About 300 students from Goulburn North Public, Tambelin Independent and Crescent schools and the House with No Steps filled up the Great Hall for music, fun and colour.
Seussical the Musical, the first theatre performance by Rocky Hill Musical Theatre Company, combines Dr Seuss’ most loved narrative.
The story closely follows Horton the elephant, from Horton Hears a Who, and his adventures.
Friendship, kindness and courage become recurring themes echoed through the show, with messages of character growth touching not only younger, but older audiences.
Director Lynda Yeadon said the musical was able to bring the passion from Dr Seuss’ books onto the stage.
“Bringing the Dr Seuss books to life gives children the chance to enjoy the stories in a personal way,” Ms Yeadon said.
“The stories are an inspiration to generations and this musical is a delight. We had so much fun creating the Jungle of Nool and Whoville”
The Rocky Hill Musical Theatre Company is a newly formed performance group that plans to refocus attention on the joys of musicals.
An extra 560 students from the Wollondilly district will watch the second show next week. Seussical the Musical is a two-hour performance.
Shows will be running until December 3. Tickets can be purchased at trybooking.com.
