Grace H:

What have you enjoyed most about being in the play?

All the support and action, it really gets you connected to your character (Horton).

Why did you enjoy this part?

It really helped me to grow in confidence because I wouldn't normally enjoy singing and dancing. My friends and the teachers have helped me so much.

What was you favourite part of the play?

I enjoy the scene where Horton talks to Maisie because she is a funny character and makes me laugh.

Harry:

I have enjoyed having a dance and a sing with all my friends together.

Why did you enjoy this part?

You're with your friends and you're active and moving.

What was you favourite part of the play?

The Wickersham brothers dance that we do, because we get to dance and have fun. It took a lot of work but it was worth it.

Isabel:

What have you enjoyed most about being in the play?

It's a very different play to what we have done before because there are so many songs and dances that we do.

Why did you enjoy this part?

It was a change of style of play, I have enjoyed it more because of this.

What was you favourite part of the play?

I like the scene where Mazie the bird is on the egg, because as a character she is sassy and funny.

Heidi:

What have you enjoyed most about being in the play?

I've really enjoyed having a main part, especially at the start where we do the song "Oh the things you can think."

Why did you enjoy this part?

I've enjoyed this because there are so many actions that we have learned and it's great when we do it together.

What was you favourite part of the play?

Where the monkeys and the kangaroo take Horton away to the court, because this is a dramatic scene and it's important.

Becca:

What have you enjoyed most about being in the play?

I like singing the songs from the play and the time we spent learning them.

Why did you enjoy this part?

The songs we sing have lots of bounce and joy, making them fun to sing.

What was you favourite part of the play?

I like the scene where Heidi says "Wake up, the scene's over!" because it is very funny to be part of. It is a hilarious scene.

Ellis:

What have you enjoyed most about being in the play?

I've enjoyed being on my feet and being active for the play. It has given me a chance to push myself.

Why did you enjoy this part?

It's fun and joyful to be a part of. I have really enjoyed it.

What was you favourite part of the play?

The opening scene because it means we all come together as a group and dance.

We also interviewed Emily, a former pupil of Eastnor, who came to help out this week. We asked her about her experiences of performing at the theatre:

Which is your most memorable part?

I have lots of memorable plays and parts, especially Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood.

Why was Little Red Riding Hood so special?

Because it was my last one and I had a big part; it gave me the confidence to sing in front of an audience.

Have you carried on with your acting career?

I have! I studied drama, dance and music at GCSE level and earlier this year I auditioned for Hereford Arts College and was offered a place there.

What makes being in Eastnor's play so special?

Everyone works so hard together - there is so much excitement and fun to be had.

Do you like performing with your friends?

Yes I do, we have all carried on performing together and our confidence has grown in doing so!

Class 0

Eastnor Primary School are proud to present 'Seussical the Musical'. Over the past few months, we have been working on our amazing musical production and we hope that you all made it to one of our performances. Putting on a school play is a rewarding and busy time of the school year, and it wouldn't have been possible for us to do this without the expertise and help of lots of wonderful people. Every child from school has taken part, whether it was singing, dancing, reciting poems or playing a musical instrument, they have all performed at the wonderful Ledbury Theatre.

Many thanks for the wonderful feedback we have received about this year's production congratulating everyone.

We are already thinking about next years performance!

Here are some photos that show the story of our week...
