DANCER ONLY AUDITIONS:
Dancers will be given an opportunity to audition for a dance role only with NO VOCAL AUDITION REQUIRED.
Those wishing to be considered for a “dance only” role should come prepared with four to six 8-counts of choreography in the style of the show. Please provide your own recorded music. Following those individual auditions, you will be asked to stay for the group dance audition with everyone who had attended the vocal auditions. Group dance auditions will happen intermittently throughout the evening.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Based on T.S. Eliot’s whimsical collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s popular musical brings together a tribe of Jellicle Cats on a moonlit evening, who must make the “Jellicle choice” to decide which of them will ascend to the mysterious Heaviside Layer to be reborn. Featuring such celebrated standards as the haunting “Memory,” Cats was an international phenomenon and its original production is still the fourth-longest-running show on Broadway that was revived in summer 2016. A magical, moving, and often hilarious glimpse into the lives of others, Cats takes Eliot’s lyrical poetry and puts it into the mouths of a diverse company of singing, dancing felines.
