Y9 Westlake Girls Student in CATS

Last weekend, the National Youth Theatre performed CATS, an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, to sell-out crowds. The show was at the Aotea Centre and had a cast of over 300 students aged 7 to 21, who danced, sang, and acted their way through 8 performances. Our very own Sofia Dillner from 9WBM was one of them!

Some of the costumes and makeup designs took up to 3 hours to apply before each show, with some of the older cast members having lessons beforehand on face paint and stage makeup. The cast has been practising since February and now take a well-deserved break before preparing for High School Musical in December.
