Jellicle Cats Come Out Tonight In Melbourne
Following a highly acclaimed Sydney season, CATS is returning to Melbourne’s Regent Theatre from December 18th. But this Jellicle Ball is a little different from any others you might have attended. Set amongst the larger-than-life junkyard playground, this production stars Delta Goodrem as glamour cat Grizabella and an updated Rum Tum Tugger who not only raps but also breaks out the serious breakdancing moves.
Joining Delta Goodrem is a seriously talented Australian cast. The male cats will feature Daniel Assetta, Ross Hannaford, James Cooper, Andrew Dunne, Matt Edwards, Christopher Favaloro, Keanu Gonzalez, Sam Hooper, Thomas Johansson, Tobias Madden, Matt McFarlane, Stephen Morgante, Brent Osborne, Josh Piterman, Taylor Scanlan, Jason Wasley and Patrick Whitbread. The female feline favourites from T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats will be Amy Berrisford, Madeline Cain, Emma Delmenico, Dominique Hamilton, Ashleigh Hauschild, Jade Hui-Wen Coutts, Erin James, Emily Keane, Sarah Landy, Bree Langridge, Holly Meegan, Samantha Morley and Stephanie Silcock.
CATS opens at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre tonight for a strictly limited season that must move to Brisbane in January. Tickets are sure to disappear quickly so make sure you get in quickly by visiting www.ticketmaster.com.au (and they would make a great Christmas present!)
