Lights, Camera, Action!

Mount de Sales Academy’s production of Seussical is off to a great start. After auditions on October 10th and 11th, the cast is set and rehearsals are in full swing. Mount de Sales girls along with boys from Mount Saint Joseph, Loyola, and Archbishop Curley are part of this lively mix of several Dr. Seuss books, some of which are: Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, Yertle the Turtle, and Oh, the Places You’ll Go.
Senior actresses are very excited to get the show on the road. “Our director Mrs. Bacon is so amazing and she makes being in the play the best thing in the whole world,” exclaims senior Laura Miller. A large pit-band performing energetic show-tunes and brightly colored costumes will transform the stage into the world of Dr. Seuss. “I am so excited to perform in my final Mount de sales musical! I have been in the play for all four years,” says senior Mary Connolly.  Stay tuned for more Seussical updates, and mark your calendars for the production from February 1st-3rd.
