Noosa girls just purrfect for upcoming musical

FOUR talented local dancers have been successful in their auditions for Cats the musical.

Ella Banic, Caley Monro, Emily Potts and Marina McBain were among 1500 dancers who auditioned for a chance to star in Andrew Lloyd Webber's beloved musical Cats, which is purring to life like you've never seen it before at the Brisbane Convention Centre in an arena spectacular.

Ella's mother Nikki Furzer said the girls had each been successful in gaining a spot in the ensemble cast presented by Harvest Rain Theatre Company.

Billed as one of the most lavish stage creations, this record-breaking large-scale production will also feature a live band and over 500 performers from across South East Queensland.

"We are very proud of our talented dancers and would love to spread the word about the musical," Nikki said.

"It's going to be fantastic."

Starring Australia's leading lady of musical theatre Marina Prior as Grizabella, this latest incarnation based on T.S Eliot's poetry "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats", will come to life on stage set to some of the most iconic music in the musical theatre genre, including the classic Memory and many, many more.

With staging by choreographer Callum Mansfield and dazzling sets and costumes, this will be the largest production of Cats ever staged in the southern hemisphere.The show arrives in Brisbane direct from Singapore and Hong Kong
