Hi I'm Aliyah Hang and I'm gonna be interviewing 6th graders to see how they are doing in 6th grade and to see if they like it there. Now when I go to see my old teacher Ms Colon Some kids be complaining about all the work there and stuff. Now I'm thinking how 6th graders feel right now. Scared, happy, sad , mad, embarrassed.

School Play

Questions, pictures and interview by Destin Le



What is the play going to be about?

Seussical the Musical incorporates a lot of Dr. Seuss book characters but mainly focuses on the story of "Horton Hears a Who." The Cat in the Hat is our narrator and helps JoJo's navigate his thinks.


When do you think the play will be finished, when will it premiere?

The play is premiering March 10th at 6PM. We'll have another show on March 11th and then school shows the week after!


Who is the main character?

We have a few main characters. The Cat in the Hat played by Vivian Soares, JoJo played by Kathleen, and Horton played by Ryan Morin.


What are some of the challenges that you’ve faced while putting the play together?

Similar to last year, illness makes it difficult to have all of the actors together every rehearsal.


What’s the best part of doing the play?

Seeing students achieve their goals of dancing/singing/acting. They take my vision and make it happen!


Are there any changes from the original play?

We are doing the "Junior" version, which means it's a little shorter than the original.


What type of genre does the play focus on?

The music is mainly pop/rock.


Is there a lesson to the play?

The lesson in Seussical is that it's ok to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in, even if others doubt you. And to use your imagination, be creative, and HAVE FUN!
