We are delighted to have the opportunity to present CATS at The Grove Theatre from 11th – 12 October 2019. Auditions will be held towards the end of May but we wanted you to be aware, now, of the commitment we are asking from any auditionees.
All rehearsals take place at the Dunstable Young People’s Centre in Manchester Place, Dunstable (park in the Regents Street car park and walk through the alley).
Directors/Production Team Night, Tuesday 14th May
Learning of audition songs, 17th , 21st May
Learning dance audition, 24th & 28th May
Recap 31st May
AUDITION DAY, Sunday 2nd June
It is most likely that the production team will want to hear people audition specific songs if they are interested in a specific Cat.
It is likely that there will be Cats that sing & dance and Cats that sing. All Cats will be on stage though.
We have two classes of membership; adults and juniors. Full adult membership is open to anyone over 18. Junior membership is arranged on a show-by-show basis as needed. For CATS, we will be looking for a small group of junior members, probably aged 13 – 18, but the dance ability will be the most important criteria.
We will be having the usual twice weekly rehearsals to learn music and set some of the numbers, but owing to the nature of this show, we are proposing to hold intensive dance workshop. This is likely to be the weekend of August 31st – 1st September.
