Andrew Lloyd Webber Production Runs December 4-7

When Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats takes the stage this December, the cast will feature a “who’s who” of the Sault Ste. Marie musical theatre scene alongside some talented newcomers.

Robb Fisher will play the role of the wise and benevolent leader Old Deuteronomy, while stage
veteran Jeannine Jefferson appears in the role of his second-in-command Munkustrap. Steven Skeggs will command attention as Rum Tum Tugger, and Christina Speers will seek acceptance from the Jellicles as the former glamour cat Grizabella. Mitchel Hopf plays the young Mr. Mistoffelees, while Carly Lukkonen will dance her way on stage as Victoria. Veteran John Fleming plays the elderly Gus, Mike Poluk is Skimbleshanks, and Skye Smith (Stewart) is Bombalurina. Emma Dingle (Demeter), Hailey Hayes (Jellylorum), Carys Hernden (Jemima), Tanner Boyle (Mungo Jerrie), Kara Colynuck (Rumpleteazer), Lauren Kinney (Jennyanydots), John Dedes (Bustopher Jones), and Isaac Withers (Growl Tiger) are the core of the featured feline cast.

The ensemble includes: Celeste Bond, Andrew Brienesse, Katelyn Brienesse, Aeva Goodship,
Avery Hemsworth, Amanda Johnson, Maria Kahtava, Melissa Kahtava, Kyla Robinson, Jared
Vecchio and Penny Gribbon.

Based on ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ by T.S. Eliot, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s on-stage
adaptation takes a tumble through the feline world in a production that is one of the most
popular Broadway shows in history. The Musical Comedy Guild production is directed by Lucas Beaver with Musical Director Rony Dal Cin and Co-Choreographer Jennifer Avery. The show runs December 4-7 at the Sault Community Theatre at White Pines. Details can be found on the Musical Comedy Guild website at www.musicalcomedyguild.com, and on their Facebook page.

Tickets for the show are available at the SCTC box office at the Station Mall and also online,
packaged in a subscription with tickets for the Addams Family (Spring 2020). Individual tickets for MCG’s CATS are on sale now!

About the Musical Comedy Guild

The Musical Comedy Guild of Sault Ste. Marie is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to
producing high-quality musical theatre entertainment for our patrons while providing a training
ground and showcase for the artistic and cultural community of the Algoma region. To date, we have produced more than 100 musicals as well as a series of cabaret-style shows. Many of our actors have received honorariums and bursaries to encourage them to pursue careers in theatre, and they have gone on to excel in communities across the province, and around the world. We benefit from the support of our local sponsors and members and many of our
alumnae who have returned to us to instruct in workshops and direct, choreograph and
produce our shows.
