Visualizing the world of Suessical Jr.! in Technical Theater class

Posted on Updated on

In the first few weeks of Technical Theatre, a Middle School Exploratory class at Westside School, the crew has been visualizing the first scene of the wonderful world of Seussical Jr.! They started out by listening to, and reading the script to get ideas of what the stage would look like, such as colors, lights, backdrop, and more.

The students were also tasked with which technical roles they wanted to play in making the musical come to life, these roles include costumes, props, makeup and other parts of technical theatre.

The project that all the students are doing is making a model of the first scene, and they had to imagine how big every prop was and if those props were going to be portable or not. It was a way for everyone to imagine and suggest what the musical might look like visually. A lot of mistakes were made during this visual experience but the students were able to use their creativity and problem solving skills to fix unwanted results.
