“I’m really excited to perform at Seussical because the set and costumes are so creative. The music is really fun to sing along to and the choreography is amazing,” said Taylor High School student Natasha Hornung.

Popular characters from Dr. Seuss’ literary works come to life on stage as theater groups perform their musical rendition of “Seussical.” Each school finds a way to bring its uniqueness to the productions.

This month will be a first for Jordan High School and Paetow High School.

Jordan High School will perform its first musical

Jordan High School is the newest Katy ISD high school to open in 2020. This year they will be releasing their first musical. Audiences can support their hard work and talent by watching “Spamalot,” which airs from January 27 to 29.

“Spamalot” is a musical adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The songs and comedy are sure to delight members of the Katy audience as the theater troupe celebrates this milestone for Katy ISD’s newest high school.

Paetow High School Brings Fine Arts Together

Paetow High School hosted students in 2017. This year they are celebrating their first full fine arts theater production of “Anastasia,” also running Jan. 27-29.

The Panthers involve several fine arts students from their theater company, the Strutter dance team and the orchestra and band. More than 100 students work to make the show possible.

Paetow High School also has new material this year. They have a projector that uses 400 light signals to create scenes that will immerse audiences in Russia.

The popular musical is based on the 1997 animated film. It follows the llegend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia.

On January 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., you can have breakfast with Anastasia and her friends in the small café of Paetow High School. Tickets for the special event are $7 and can be purchased in line.
