Before I begin, allow me to explain some things for anyone not in the know. First off, as many of you may already know, I'm a member of my high school marching band. Ok, now on to the title. Anyone not in the know is probably confused by it. Honestly, I was too when I first heard it announced as this year's marching band show. In case you don't know, Theodor Geisel is someone we are all probably quite familiar with...Dr Suess! This initially may sound too childish or simple or whatnot for a marching band show, especially for a competition band such as ours, but it's actually quite the opposite. Ok, now that I've explained the title & everything, time to explain this show. An important piece of trivia for ya'll is that the writer intended for this show to be a Tim Burton type of take on Dr Suess stories. No, that doesn't mean it's a creepy show. Our show is broken down into 4 parts or "movements". 1st movement is "We're off And Away". This is where you - the audience - enters into the "World Of Wonder". We'll visualize this through our formations & by using props such as gates. This movement is based off of "Oh, The Places You'll Go". 2nd movement is "The Cat In The Hat". This movement is kinda composed of 2 distinct parts, which I will refer to as part A & part B. Part A is about the Cat In The Hat himself. Part B however, is about Thing 1 & Thing 2...and yes, Part B is crazy & intense, & in a very fun way. Don't worry, you'll be able to tell where it becomes about Thing 1 & Thing 2, we have voice-overs & a lot of cool visual effects. 3rd movement is "How The Grinch Stole Christmas". This movement is a bit simpler, but the music & the field formations for this do a good job of conveying the story of The Grinch. 4th movement - the final movement - is "Horton Hears A Who". The music & drill both portray the important moments in the story. For example, the part where the Whos are about to be killed is a tense part, & it shows in the drill & music. Put all 4 of those together, & you get what will ultimately be one awesome show. For those wondering how long it lasts, the show clocks in at a total of 9 minutes & 15 seconds. Yeah, it's a long show, but we already had to cut a lot of ideas, & if we had cut anything else, the show wouldn't make sense, & our score at competitions would drop. I will post a video at the end of the season so everyone can see this - AMAZING - show. If you wish to see this in person, I will put up a list of competition dates & locations soon just in case any are near you or you'll be in the area at that time or anything like that. I know this is quite lengthy, & I apologize for that, but it had to be in order for me to properly explain the show. This post is just like the show itself - any shorter & it wouldn't make sense. Anyways, please leave comments, I'd REALLY love to see everyone's thoughts on this.
