Summer 2016 (Special Education Summer School)
MacHaydn Theatre presentation: “The Seussical”
Carrie Engel, Teacher of special Education for CCSD filed this report in August, 2016
Twenty-five students and adult chaperones attended the Mac-Haydn Children’s Theater Performance of “The Seussical”, which wrapped up their entire Dr Seuss theme for the summer. The special education students had been practicing appropriate behavior for shows in public (sitting quietly, listening to people when they are speaking, staying in seats). Students were able to apply this knowledge in a public (but small) theater at the Mac-Haydn. They also saw many Dr. Seuss characters within the show that they had read, heard, and listened to throughout the summer weeks. This project far exceeded its goals. All the students and adults had a great time at the performance. The show itself was upbeat, engaging, and interactive with the audience and our special education students. The show tied perfectly into the theme of the summer program. Students were familiar with characters and story lines; therefore they were able to pay closer attention to the performance. All of the students stayed in their seats and their behavior was appropriate for a public show.
