So this video is a little tribute to the incredible spectacle of the Jellicle Ball, as performed by the beautiful, talented guys and girls who have been part of the 2006-2009 & 2013-2014 UK & Europe tours - and actually, the video also doubles as a tribute to all the amazing dancers who have been part of these tours! Basically I pooled clips from the UK Tour in 2006, their stop in Portugal, Germany in 2008/9 and then the clips of the 2013 cast from the Olivier Awards as well as the 2014 cast launching Cats at the London Palladium. Hope you enjoy the video, which can now be found on the Videos page along with all my other theatre-related videos to date.
Some long-awaited changes have finally been made to my 'Dream Cast' page! I've been waiting a long long time for the good people in charge of the Cats Official Site to release the brand new promotional photographs taken of the show following their April cast change in order for me to be able to move the amazing Adam Lake and the fabulous Cassie Clare from my Dream Cast's swing section and up into the roles that I have come to love them playing: Alonzo and Cassandra! As well as moving these two lovely, talented people into the main body of the cast, I've added a whole load of 2014 UK & Europe Tour Jellicles into the swing section, bringing the swing section up to being 30-people-strong meaning, you guessed it, there are now more swings than characters in the show! But I simply couldn't do without adding Adam Salter, Ben Mundy, Ben Yates, Callum Train, Dane Quixall, Filipo Strocchi, Hannah Kenna Thomas, Kathryn Barnes, Natasha Mould, Ross Finnie, Ryan Gover and Zizi Strallen to the ranks - and my reasons as to why can now all be read on the Dream Cast page. Incientally, because I clearly have far too much time on my hands, I've also named the dance captain, his assistant, the musical director, the resident director and even the company manager! So the question is...do you agree with me?! Enjoy reading and thinking it all over!!
