Announcing our creative team

Zelda Rolfe is delighted to announce that the award-winning Cat Chapman will be joining Zelda and the Limelight Theatre Company as part of her creative team for our forthcoming performances of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical CATS.

Who is Cat Chapman?

Cat Chapman is a professional choreographer and qualified dance teacher who has based herself in Norfolk to train aspiring performers to go on to professional careers in the arts.

She is the founder and artistic director of the all-male youth dance company LEGACY, as well as running an elite pre-professional training program and teaching in schools in Norfolk. You can find out more about Legacy here.

Cat began dancing at the age of 3 in Norwich and at the age of 16 went on to full-time professional training at Laine Theatre Arts. She has performed around the world, in touring theatres and cruise ships. It was with Matthew Bourne, as dance ambassador for East Anglia, that helped Cat establish Legacy.

…I went to see my granddaughter in the Limelight CATs production on Saturday the 1st June the matinee performance…

…The acting and singing standard from such a wide age range was so impressive, what struck me most was their professionalism in staying in character while just being a background extra! Fantastic I was closely watching every kitten on purpose, first-rate….

The costumes were first rate and the scenery what a simple but effective backdrop, well done the set designers. The makeup…wow …a work of art to perfection.

Please pass on my sincere congratulations to all who took part, there was not one person who let the side down and to use 40 children in singing dancing and acting showcased all their incredible abilities. Well done.
