Sour Kangaroo

Seussical is over...far too quickly! I wish we had another weekend of shows--this cast was phenomenal! Our patrons were blown away. Not one would have guessed that most of these kids had never done any musical theater before!

Blondechick17 (her birthday was on Sunday, the last day of shows) had fun playing a challenging role for her, the sassy, soul-singing Sour Kangaroo with an attitude!

"HUMPF!" humpfed a voice. 'Twas a sour kangaroo.
And the young kangaroo in her pouch said, "Humpf!" too.

"Why, that speck is as small as the head of a pin.
A person on that?...Why, there never has been!"

"I think you're a fool!" laughed the sour kangaroo.
And the young kangaroo in her pouch said, "Me, too!"
"You're the biggest blame fool in the Jungle of Nool!"
(from Horton Hears a Who)

Oh, please take that speck away!"

Curtain call!

"I do not like green eggs and ham,

I do not like them Sam-I-Am!"

She did her own makeup and the Lil' Roo's too, and crimped her long hair every time. Lil' Roo's mom did the "ears" (made from their hair) on both. The directors asked for a purple accent to go in their hair, and I was thrilled to find those sunglasses with the disco ball "earrings" at a Halloween store; they just had diva written all over them and added a lot, I thought, to unify the two of them and put them "over the top" as characters!

Where did she get the outfit! I can't find anything like it Anywhere! Which store should I go to?
