A popular musical is seeking skilled performers for a reimagined production of a West End favourite.

The Lowestoft Players are preparing for their staging of the musical 'Cats', set to run from September 20 to 28 of this year.

The team is currently on the hunt for cast members with excellent singing and acting skills, or those with great dance ability.

The production is a freshly envisioned version of the beloved musical scored by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Director Stephen Wilson said: "The obvious difference is that will be no costumes made of tight fitting lycra – I expect that might be a relief to many potential performers.

“However there will be plenty of feline make-up."

The setting is a theatre in ruins amid the London blitz, with cast members outfitted in period-appropriate costumes.

Workshops and auditions for this exciting adaptation will occur over the coming weeks.

Pre-audition workshops include two parts: the first commences at 7.15pm on Monday, April 29, the second at the same time on Friday, May 10.

Auditions will follow for solo roles by appointment on Saturday, May 11, with a main audition workshop on Sunday, May 12 from 9.00am to 1.00pm.

It paves the way for the eagerly awaited production, inspired by Eliot's 'Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats'.

"Memory," the most famous song from the musical Cats, was initially performed by Elaine Paige in 1981.

Barbra Streisand also covered the song the same year.
