From El Dorado Musical Theatre

El Dorado Musical Theatre will hold auditions on Monday, February 8, 2010 for its spring production of “CATS.” The auditions will be held at EDMT’s rehearsal facility located at 5011 Golden Foothill Parkway, Unit #4 in the El Dorado Hills Business Park.

CATS is open to performers between the ages of 10 to 20 and will run from April 9th -25th at the Jill Solberg Performing Arts Theater on the campus of Folsom High School.

Those who plan to audition for a part in “CATS” should prepare a one-minute audition song and dress to dance. For more information regarding character roles, musical numbers, and show synopsis, and fees, please visit
So come be a part of EDMT’s production of CATS! With a

magnificent musical score composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, including

the poignant hit song Memory, CATS is quite simply a triumphant piece of musical

theatre not to miss being a part of! Based on the universally

popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the

annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to

ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theatre phenomenon, CATS

opened at London's New London Theatre on May 11, 1981 and ran for a

record-setting 21 years! CATS's London success was nearly matched on

Broadway where it ran at the Wintergarden Theatre for just over 18 years!

Plus, those that are cast will have a unique opportunity to meet and be

choreographed by Abe Sylvia, a Broadway Actor, that performed in CATS on Broadway!

If you think you have what it takes to be the “star”, love to perform, or just want

to make some great friends, don’t miss being a part of one of the most exhilarating

and innovative musicals ever staged!
