Theatre In The Night Of The Cats

I was supposed to do this post already yesterday but since it was the busy busy premiere day I just ran out of time. So instead I write the post now when the premiere and half of the shows are already beautifully behind us.

Yesterday was the 1st Kissojen Yö (Eng. Night of the Cats) in the Korkeasaari Zoo in Helsinki and the premiere of our Kissalaakso High School musical by Korkeasaaren Teatteri. The play is written, directed and composed by Lasse Turunen.

Besides acting (more about that one picture later) in the musical I did some of the illustrations we used in the internet marketing like the picture above. It’s a photograph collage I did out of stock free photographs. All the official posters used in zoo are done by their graphic designers but I’m happy they used my illustration and logo font in the posters as well.

I play the part of Amanda who is a geeky leopard from the drama group. Below is Amanda taking an excited selfie on the stage before show time yesterday.

Here below is the whole fantastic cast. There is the drama group (played by me, Linnea Peurakoski and Outi Oinas), the sporty cheerleaders (Henna Helasvuo, Ilona Kuusela, Anni Lampi and Nina Lampi) the cool cheetahs (Juha-Matti Kahilakoski and Niina Hartikainen), the beauty queen snow leopard Susanna (Jutta Järvinen), the dramatic teacher lynx (Laura Madekivi) and the handsome cheetah Justus who all adore (Saban Ramadani).

The 1st Night of The Cats was a success. The island was completely packed for the whole evening. Also our shows were completely full and we received a loud applause every time. People smiled, laughed and thanked us. Absolutely amazing night.

But if you missed our show the 1st time you still have chance to participate to the 2nd Night Of The Cats which is held next Friday on the 12th of September. Welcome! See you there maybe? Meooow.
