LAMP Children's Theatre were delighted to have performed "Seussica The Musical" - a musical perfect for the whole family.

Seussical takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo. The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.”Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor,Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. Eventually, the two fall in love.

Now one of the most widely produced musicals in the country, Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Charming Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.

LAMP are delighted to be performing "The Drowsy Chaperone" as our 2015 production, running from Monday 19th to Saturday 24th of October at Linlithgow Academy Theatre.

The curtain rises on a present-day musical theatre fanatic eager to tell you about his favorite Broadway musical — the 1928 musical comedy 'The Drowsy Chaperone'. He’s the ultimate Everyfan and “Drowsy” is his guilty pleasure.

To chase his blues away, the 'Man in the Chair' drops the needle on his favourite LP and as he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show cleverly and magically blooms to life.

From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Man in Chair's infectious love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theatre.
