Post Upcoming Productions/Events in Southern California
Since there seems to be some Southern California fans on here, I figured I'd make a post on upcoming productions and related events. So far:

Productions:
Archer School for Girls- Los Angeles- May 18, 2012- May 19, 2012

Related:
Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber Concert- California Theater, San Bernardino- April 20-22, 2012 (will feature Cats medley and "Memory")

.....if you live in SoCal and know of any other productions (middle/high school, community), please share!

"Cats for Cats" Charity event @ The Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles- July 14th

Image

From what I've gathered, it's a charity show that involves dancing from the ALW show, but no costumes/set. All of the proceeds go towards a local cat shelter. Tickets are on sale via Goldstar. Someone needs to go check it out, because I'll be out of the county during it (otherwise I'd go). Sounds kind of cool!

CATS for CATS Kitty Bungalow--I missed it again this year, I moved back to So Cal too late! Maybe they will hold it next year. Basically it's a variety show with actors, singers, and dancers, but no-one in costumes.

Also the Oakland CA regional is running in Sept. I wish I could go see it. But it's up north in the Bay Area.

I might have to contact La Mirada then! Thanks for the tip!

Wish they were doing one down here in So Cal this coming year. I'm going through CATS withdrawals and I was not able to see the last Troika show like I wanted too as I was struck with bronchitis! Very upset but hoping to see some high school production I suppose this year, I'll try to look up some more around my area in SD.

SHE'S BACK!!!!

I'm constantly checking the Roger's and Hammerstein website for productions. Of course, there are some unlicensed productions that obviously aren't listed. The Claremont production for instance wasn't on there.

There is an upcoming production in San Diego .....but it's at a kid/teen's theater.

Salvation Army, Kroc Kids Theatre, San Diego, CA
May 24-26, 2013


Looks like a nice venue. But I have reservations towards amateur productions.

I may have to check that out, I saw a kid's regional in Balboa Park a few years back. It was painful to sit through but still it was CATS and they were doing their best. *Sigh.* All I have left are kids' productions and some crappy regionals but hey, it's still CATS.

Have a while to wait until I see it next, up in Portland at the Broadway Rose. I guess they are going to make their costumes themselves or rent from FCLO so they can get the set thrown in there too.

I know what you mean. I haven't seen any live, but I've seen PLENTY of videos of amateur productions on Youtube. Honestly, if you don't have the dancers/singers, why even bother? :?

I guess while I'm at it, I'll add this:

(Northern California, but, unfortunately, this and the San Diego production are the only ones in California I could find :thumbdown: )

Broadway By The Bay, Burlingame, CA
April 4-21, 2013


If you wanted to make the drive, it's an option.

Edit: Oh, and also! Betty Buckley is coming to the Segerstrom in Costa Mesa, May 16 -18, 2013. From what I've heard, she sings "Memory" at the end of her concerts.

@ VTWC ....That's interesting, because the Broadway Rose production is not listed on the Rogers and Hammerstein website. When is it playing? See, this is what I was talking about with the Claremont production. Not all of them are listed. So maybe there's hope for something popping up in CA.
