02/01/2019 Singing and acting – New Year, New Opportunities

Happy New Year! 2019 brings new opportunities for singing and acting with the Limelight Theatre Company’s summer term performance.

Date announced for the first sing through

Zelda Rolfe has secured the services of pianist Laura Western for a “sing-through” on Sunday 6th January 2019, of our forthcoming summer term production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning musical Cats. We will be performing at The Maddermarket Theatre in Norwich.

Singing your heart out

Sunday will be an opportunity for everyone who is interested in performing in Cats, to experience the songs for the first time. Songs such as The Rum Tum Tugger, The Jellicle Ball, Mr Mistoffelees and of course the wonderful Memory to transport you to the Junkyard of the Jellicles.

Singing open to all

This initial sing through is open to anyone below the age of 21. All Limelight Theatre Company members are encouraged to attend, as Zelda would like as many of her students as possible to be included this year. We also invite non-members to attend if they are interested in performing as part of this production. Full details below.

…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.
