Post Palos Verdes CATS cast
Got the cast list for Palos Verdes!

Grizabella: Debbie Prutsman
Deuteronomy: Rob Hoyt
Munkustrap: Bill Ledesma
Rum Tum: TBD
Mistofelees: Jake Du Pree
Bustopher/Gus/Growltiger: Jason Hammond
Skimbleshanks: Jon Wailin
Demeter: Amber Skipps
Bombalurina: Rachel Davis
Jennannydots: Melissaa Glasgow
Jelly/Griddle: Kirklyn Robinson
Mungojerrie: Steven Rada
Rumpleteaser: Alison Boresi
Sillabub: Bailey Sonner
Plato/McCavity: Gabe Navarro
Victoria: Juliana Saenz
Cassandra: Kimberly Sklow
Alonzo: Andrew Soto
Coricopat: Eric Taylor
Tantomile: Erin Umphenour
Tumblebrutus: Brandon Halvorsen
Pouncival: Arielle Meads
Etcetera: Paige Sealey

They added Etcetera at the last minute so I have to rig a costume together for her. I have unitards for Electra and that's what I'm using instead, just making new warmers, a tail and a wig for her. Thats the Electra from the German Tour and Berlin. So Electra will be Etcetera if that makes sense.

Ooh I'm excited to see Electra on stage!

But *sigh* I was really hoping we'd get a new Griz. That was my biggest fear. Is there really not anyone else who can play that role? She's played it like 4 times already. :problem:

Crap! She's slightly larger than the costume! Ugh! They may have to rent from FCLO the Griz costume. I don't have anything larger. Hope she can fit into the unitards too. Also, Jelly is a larger-sized woman too. This is gonna suck if they cant fit into the costumes.

Uh oh, does the wig fit at least? I don't like the FCLO Griz wig.

Pretty sure that the wigs will all fit. :-)

James told me that the actress who plays Griz this time around, Gina, is smaller than Debbie so that's a go. Haven't seen a pic of the actress who plays Jelly yet. They get the costumes later on this week so they can go Makeup Tech next weekend.

Can't wait to see them in all their glory. That's awesome that you are going opening weekend! :clap: Please let us know more about the cast and any changes they may have made. I don't know if they are doing their own Pekes and Pollicles or not. Since it's not directed by a CATS alumni, I'm not sure if they are staying true to the script.

Do they even have access to Pekes and Pollicles costumes? Have any regional theaters in this area done that number?

I will definitely report back. I'm going with my boyfriend who's never seen the show, so it'll be interesting to hear what he has to say.

When I saw the show in Portland, OR at Broadway Rose in June 2014, they had done Pekes by making heads out of laundry baskets and stuff. They used the FCLO costumes and made their own Pekes. They were pretty well done considering not many regionals do the number due to the elaborate costuming. I've not gotten around to making Pekes but I always wanted to do it. Even my husband wanted to do the decoupaging of the custom boxes.

Why are they using the Candlelight pics of the FCLO costumes? Just curious.

yes those are the FLCO costumes. I remeber the Jellylorum costume I painted and the Sillabub costume I painted too. The Sillabub is being used for Bomba now and the Jellylorum is being used for the Demeter now.
