It’s time for auditions with the Limelight Theatre Company. Calling all youth dancers who are interested in performing in our next show in 2019!

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. Find out more about Cat from the Legacy Dance Company website.

Musical Theatre is a great passion for Cat and she looks forward to working with the young people of Limelight on this exciting project.

Just to say, I really enjoyed Matilda! The youngsters did an amazing job on a comparatively small stage for such a production. Yes, we spotted Lois who was excellent in her parts! I have seen it in London so knew the story but never read the book— Rita says she might do that now! Jean x
