Bondi Feast finished up last night with a bang, not a whimper, and more than a few meows as well. Space Cats was the final show on the docket and what a show it was, glittered (not littered) cats stole the show in a very funny tail about love and acceptance. (Caution: Before reading on be warned there may be terrible cat/dog puns ahead). Unfortunately on for one night only, you will never look at your moggie the same way again after seeing Space Cats.

Presented by Brevity Theatre Company and Bondi Feast and from the team that brought us Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, Space Cats begins when Russian dog Laika is sent into space, a scared and unwilling Mutt-Nik. He runs afoul of a power mad cat who has tired of her slaves, and who decides that he will be a welcome change in her routine.

Space Cats is only 45 minutes, and it goes by fast. The laughs are frequent and the show features some fantastic performances as the cats belt their way through several fun musical numbers, and those cats can really sing. Bin Cat (Samantha Young) in particular, who is ostracized by the others, is a great performer, with an excellent vocal range. Skylar Ellis as Laika needs the accompanying music turned down a notch for his voice to shine properly.

Ellen Mary Simpson has done wonders with purrfect choreography that highlights the talent of the actors, and the slinky curves under those metallic lycra costumes. With an untamed exuberance, all of the cats (and dog) rock the house in a final number that is really the cat’s pajamas.

Hopefully Space Cats will be back, sooner rather than later, keep an eye on Brevity’s website for another performance of this show: www.brevitytheatre.com.au/

 

Featuring: Olivia Charalambous, Skylar Ellis, Gautier Pavlovic-Hobba, Aaron Tsindos and Samantha Young.

Creative Team: Samantha Young, Matthew Predny, Anthony Spinaze, Benjamin Brockman and Ellen Mary Simpson.
