Christine definitely should require classical training. While not to the extent of Piangi or Carlotta, as I think she needs to have a lighter, younger, less-operatic tone, she still needs to be a trained singer in some respect.

Trained singer, yes, but classical trained? No, not really. Carlotta and Piangi should in my opinion be classical trained singers, but the producers of the show does not seem to share my opinion. So basically none need to be trained classical, having a normal musical-theatre education should be more than enough, provided they have the range.

Here to happily announce that North Central College of Naperville, IL has snapped up the newly released rights to the show and will be performing it in the fall!

Edit: Worth noting that although we are a little known school, we successfully performed "CATS" last year in one of the best-reviewed productions of the show in local history, including trumping the downtown Chicago version that came through not a year earlier. Our theater program is solid.
