Shows

Each year pupils of Artisan have the opportunity of performing on stage, working towards a full scale production to enhance the skills they’ve learnt in our classes.

Our most recent Big Show was ‘SUESSICAL’ on October 26th & 27th 2022 at The Regent Centre, Christchurch. 

‘Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.’

Charming Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
