The musical Seussical the Musical was a jovial experience that made many including me reminiscence the times when we read Dr. Suess. The creative sets, colorful costumes, and the acting skills brought Dr. Seuss 's books alive. I truly enjoyed the aspect of joining Dr. Seuss books and plots, like Gertrude McFuzz to create one plot and the inclusion of The Cat in the Hat in many of the scenes. The musical captured the ambience of the books, specifically Horton Hears A Who. The dedication of those in the musical shined from their eminent acting skills and their ability to display the character they portrayed.
Both Singin' in the Rain and The Wizard of Oz include musical and dance numbers. How do the musical/dance pieces compare in the two films? Which film makes better use of music and dance? Why? The way that the two films are similar when it comes to there music and dance would be when it starts off as a conversation, then as time goes on the music played first and all the thoughts go into singing how they feel.

The musical also gives the audience more to think about with its different viewpoint of “The Wicked Witch” and how she isn’t so wicked which can be taken into the context of our everyday lives with the people around us.

Personally, Phantom of the Opera was the first musical I had ever seen. I remember being in middle school and my dad suggesting that I watch it and me shaking my head because I did not even like opera. Begrudgingly, I agreed to watch it and after seeing the whole thing it shocked me. I was so surprised with how much I enjoyed seeing every second of it. That show really got me interested in the theatre world.

When I attended Shrek the Musical put on by Wylie High Schools Theater Department, I admit that I did not have high expectations. I had always enjoyed the Shrek movies, but was not prepared to witness the green Ogre come to life before my eyes.

Shrek the Musical consisted of a tremendous cast, beautiful music, awe inspiring scenery in addition to heart felt imagery.
Mrs. Schumacher Film Appreciation Final Paper Footloose When watching both Footloose movies the 1984 and the 2011 version, there are quite a few noticeable differences. I would like to start out by saying that the biggest one is the character choice. In my opinion Kevin Bacon didn't play a very good Ren McCormick. I believe that Kenny Wormald plays a better Ren. In my opinion the more modern version of the movie is a lot more up beat.
The Parisian night club, The Moulin Rouge itself is the dangerous, greedy and deceitful environment that Christian finds himself confronting in order to complete his call to adventure. As soon as Christian enters the cabaret it becomes apparent that it is an aggressive setting full of boisterous showfolk who share the common violent passion for disorder and physical stimulation, a vastly different experience compared to the one he is familiar with. Whether the threshold be literal as in Orpheus’s situation or symbolic as in Christian’s, it signifies the hero’s commitment to the events in store for him on his

Due to that I am a hopeless romantic I really enjoy the song lyrics and melody. The song was very catchy that I ended up singing the song for the rest of my day.
Finally, this last example of Christian life story taken from the film is representing most of the Christians reasons on believing Jesus Christ. Newsboys, the band that is part of the cast of the movie asked by a reporter how they can believe that God and Jesus are real. They answered that they believed because it gives them hope. Just like many Christians’ reason why they still believed in God and Jesus Christ in spite of their hardships is because by believing, it gives them hopes in life and motivation that after all these circumstances, there is a reward that awaits them in the kingdom of God.
Two songs that I would argue stood out to me the most within the musical A Chorus Line were “I Can Do That” and “Dance Ten, Looks Three”. “I Can Do That” to me describes how anyone that is in the industry of theatre essentially got their start. Without trying to generalize, it often seems that there was a pivotal moment that showed to a person or a character
This essay will examine the historical accuracy of the film Les Miserables in terms of the social, economic and political conditions in French society post French Revolution. The film Les Miserables depicts an extremely interesting time in French history (from about 1815-1832.)
