Post How to make Mr. Mistoffelees explosions?
some friends and I are performing Magical Mr. Mistoffelees for my school's Musical Variety Show, we had the idea of having Mr. Mistoffelees point at one of the other cats, and then they pull a confetti popper, but it kind of interferes withour choreography and probably wouldn't look that impressive. Whatever this school used (at 1:45) looks pretty neat, does anyone know what it is, or have any other suggestions?

Just a suggestion, but if it's a group of you guys performing, why not do the Jellicle Ball? Mistofelees is really a solo.

Well, The Jellicle Ball is really long and requires a lot of good dancing, and has no singing, I thought we would do a catchier more recognizable song. and no one else in my group wants to sing solo, so Mr. Mistoffelees seemed best.

Can any of you do 24 fouett├ęs in a row? That's pretty difficult.

I was thinking you could do the last five minutes of the Ball (the finale). I think you could easily learn the choreography ....or you could even do your own! Another great number would be Macavity, since the last verse is sung in a group.

This is a great reference (start it at 5:50) >>>>

But this would be equally as impressive!
