Tonight I had the pleasure of not only photographing a stage show (my favorite thing to do) but being incredibly entertained while doing so. I photographed The La Habra High School Theater Guild’s amazing dress rehearsal performance of Cats.
The show was visually stunning – with gorgeous costumes and makeup that created an absolutely magical world of make-believe. The choreography was sharp and complicated; several times I was astounded when I remembered I was watching high school students. And this slightly shortened version of Cats proved to be a fresh, modern and exhilarating version of a Broadway Musical I frankly have always found quite boring. This musical moved quickly and by the end I was wishing for just one more scene.
The musical opens this Saturday November 12, 2011 at Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton, California and runs through November 20, 2011. You can purchase tickets to this family friendly and fur-iously fun show (I couldn’t help myself with the pun and alliteration!) online HERE.
