Minetto Students Perform Seussical JR

Snippets of the stories by renowned author Dr. Seuss came to life during Minetto Elementary’s spring musical, “Seussical JR.”
Fifth- and sixth-grade cast members delighted an audience full of their peers as a dress rehearsal performance prior to a recent night show, open to the greater Oswego community. The students worked hard to study their spoken and sung lines, as well as choreography as they brought the audience on a journey with Dr. Seuss characters Horton the elephant, the Cat in the Hat and Gertrude McFuzz among several others.
The whimsical and colorful performance was directed by Minetto music teacher Susan Olinsky. “Seussical JR.” cast members included: Grace Dawson (child/JoJo), Lana Hsu, Lucas Wallace and Emily Hooper (cats 1,2, 3), Noah Ireland (Horton), Olivia Kurilovitch (Gertrude McFuzz), Jade Scheg (Mayzie LaBird), Katie Vincent (Sour Kangaroo), Elvis Henderson, Alina Sykut and Lucas Wiedeman (Wickershams 1, 2, 3), Kaleigh LeRoux, Gabe LaPage, Maria Saltalamachia, Sophia Percival and MacKenzie VanPatten (jungle citizens 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), Jacob Wiedeman (Mr. Mayor), Rowinn Pennington (Mrs. Mayor), Kyndra Johnson (Young Kangaroo), Gracie Adams (talk show host), Nathaniel Hibbert (Vlad Vladikoff), Joe Smith (Marshal) and Alyssa Lofstrom (Judge Yertle).
Ensemble cast members of the Whos include: Taylor Platt, Clara King, Layla Chwalek, Shawn Cooper-DeVaul, Grace Ketcham and Mason Hayden, while the jungle citizens included: Dawn Ellis, Kayden Crouse, Ethan Geroux and Miley Bevacqua.
