CATS! John Ellis talks about getting into character

Mid Morning Mix // Entertainment // April 25, 2017

CATS opens at the Theatre de Beaulieu in Lausanne on the 25th April. They'll be around for 2 weeks as part of their European tour to bring this huge production to the shores of Lake Geneva.

John Ellis plays Old Deuteronomy (above: top, right). Having recently finished several years in the West End in Phantom of the Opera, he's excited to be back out on the road and in another great patriarchal role. 

Before the show arrived in Lausanne, Katt Cullen gave him a call on a rare afternoon off (which he'd decided to spend at the zoo), to talk about the show's success, the wonderful characters, on-tour life and of course the incredible hair and make-up!

More information can be found through the WRS events page and also on the Theatre de Beaulieu website.
