Session Two of Westside Summer Camp
Cats is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with purr-fect felines including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Skimbleshanks and Grizabella. The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year—the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
Students will be working with a Director, Choreographer and Musical Director during rehearsals. There will be a Production Manager and Counselors present at all times. Casting will be fair and as much as possible “ensemble” — every child, irrespective of experience, will feel they’re making an important contribution to the success of the show. The final production will be fully realized with sets, costumes, lights and the roar of a supportive crowd.
