Bomba Plato Femi Taylor Sean Hingsley 1987

In 1987, Cats moved from Sydney to Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne where it started on 10th October 1987. The production ran until December 1988.

Production Specifics Edit

The Melbourne production was a transfer of the show from Sydney. The cast included a member of the original London cast: Femi Taylor - the original Tantomile - played Bombalurina in Melbourne. She later reprised this role in the West End production. Also Jason Gardiner, who played Alonzo in London and on the video, was in the ensemble.

As in Sydney, there were 22 cats (no Electra), including Sillabub, Tumblebrutus and Pouncival.

The production closed in December 1988. In October 1989, a touring production that went through Australia started.
