On the hunt for some cool “Cats”

The Midwest Regional Ballet group is searching for talent as they prepare to put on their spring musical, Cats. On Sunday, they held vocalist auditions in Joplin looking for local talent to fill roles.

Dozens of people met to sing a prepared song and show off their dancing skills, in hopes of joining the show. Officials say they’re excited to see what kind of talent the 4-State area has to offer.

“I just wanted to utilize the local people that can sing and or move or dance to infiltrate in with the dancers of Midwest Regional Ballet for the show,” said Kaye Lewis who works for Midwest Regional Ballet.

The musical Cats will be performed on April 11th through the 14th at the Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium.
