Oh. My. God.

I went to see Seussical this Saturday in full cynic mode, expecting the off-key squeaky voices that I remembered from high school plays of my youth.

We have some amazingly talented kids in Pleasanton, and I wanted to take the opportunity to applaud them, the directors, their parents, and everyone who had anything to do with this production. This was San Francisco stage-level performing. My family has seen things like Beach Blanket Babylon, Spamalot, and Wicked in San Francisco, and this performance was honestly comparable to those much more expensive performances.

BRAVO!

Absolutely phenomenal performance!!! The kids are extremely talented. I went to see the show with 4 of my friends and our kids. All of us were completely blown away. Kudos to the kids, their coaches and the parents and all others who trained and nurtured these kids. Hope all the kids find all the success in their life.

Everyone should go see this show. They have it this Thu, Fri and Sat.
