Dr Seuss "Seussical the Musical" Live in Singapore! + Win Family Show Tickets

Direct from the UK, the fantastical, bombastical and songtastical world of Dr. Seuss, one of the most celebrated children's book authors, will be here live on stage through Seussical the Musical at the Esplanade Theatre from 6 to 8 November 2015!!

Lil Pumpkin just caught The Cat in the Hat production with her classmates last month on a school outing and is thrilled to know that a new Dr Seuss show is coming to town!

The broadway musical follows a unique story-line and actually features a spectacular compilation of whimsical elements, characters and delightful verses from some of Dr. Seuss classics – Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat (♥◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

Follow the adventures of Horton the Elephant who discovers a small world floating by on a tiny speck of dust. This small world is floating out of control through the universe and is the home of the Whos, including Jojo – a Who with “Things” that defy all description. Between them they must find a way to save Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers.

But Horton faces a double challenge, he’s been left alone to guard an abandoned egg, abandoned by none other than Mayzie La Bird! Caught between a dust speck and his incubating egg, Horton is truly alone in the universe, but while he faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and ends up on trial, little does he know the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.

While the kind-hearted Horton tries to protect the speck of dust and the Whos who live on it, look out for Cat in the Hat, the zany narrator who peppers the musical with his endless tricks, and witty, thought-provoking commentary.

I'm sure the live show will be a hit with all those who love Dr Seuss books, and is a great introduction to his fantastical world for those who haven't got in touch with his magic yet. So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and fire up your imagination in the world of Dr. Seuss with Seussical the Musical! (๑☆‿ ☆#)

My kids ain't in primary school yet but I simply love to read blog where Mummy's/ Daddy's bloggers shared their views and thoughts. Do share with us your advise for your girl!

Ever came across a Mummy's blogger sharing this ~ Build confidence & familiarize themselves with school! Felt that this is a very important point that we should take note.

Having self confidence is one of the key to success. Parents should hence help them build confidence by sharing positive experiences in school, how they will enjoy the accompany of the new friends and what they can expect in Primary one!

Bring your kids round the schools during the orientation; sharing with them some of the important places like the Classroom, Canteen, Bookshop, Library, Toilets, Teachers' Room and etc. Introducing them the people they will be meeting at school, for example the Principle, Vice Principals, Teachers and etc. This helps kids familiarize themselves with the school, so that they don't get panic on the first day of school.

Taking things easy but at the same time learn to be responsible for own belongings & remember instructions or memos given by teachers. Being more independent as its a totally different environment compared to being in a childcare.

They should learn to be more ibdependent and start doing simple things by themselves before the end of K2 (e.g., buying drinks from a store).

I normally train them 2 months beforehand by praying together, setting the routine (like waking up and sleeping early) in place, teach them how to talk to the teacher if they need help,how to buy meals with vege and limit junk food, independent checking of timetable to pack bag.

As it is a big transition for my girl, We started to get prepare few weeks back. She started to pack her own bag. We let her buy small things & pay for it. We try to help her to speak up for herself & convey teachers message to us in more proper way..

Personally I loved to put small surprise notes in her bag or purse, so she always feel us along with her in each & every step..

love the Broadway indeed. We are planning to see Pan the broadway version :)...for sure it will be fun to see them performing one of the classics in kids' literature :)..

AILEEN chin said...

Just try your best. Listen to teacher and make new friends.
I believe that the kid needs to be adapted to the new environment before she can absorp fully the teaching in school.
