From the 6th  to the  9th of June Wingfield Academy’s 2017 production of ‘Seussical the Musical’, graced the stage and transported nearly 1000 audience members from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, narrated by Nathan Docherty (Y11) our very own Cat in the Hat, he introduced the audience to the world of Dr Suess and his most beloved characters such as; Horton the Elephant (James Ansell Y10), Gertrude Mcfuzz (Leona Drymishi Y10) , Mayzie La Bird (Libby Ryalls Y11) and the Hero of Whoville, JoJo (Jorja Proctor Y7).

The audience consisted of 570 of our local Primary students from Greasbrough, Redscope, Rockingham, Roughwood and Thorpe Hesley, in addition to two sell out performances to the general public. Wingfield Students were the focus of the entire production leading in roles not only on stage but behind the scenes. This year’s production was supported by the following departments; Art, Geography, ICT, Inclusion, Maths, PE, Performing arts and Technology, alongside the additional help from Finance, examination invigilator’s and our kitchen staff.

An amazing experience for all involved and the students have created memories that will last a lifetime.
