“This New Zealand/Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion is the Lon­don re­vival ver­sion, so it was more of a mil­i­tary-style tap dance be­fore and now it’s like a Broad­way 42nd Street num­ber.”

Hav­ing au­di­tioned for three char­ac­ters in the mu­si­cal, Mee­gan said her heart had been set on play­ing nanny cat of the tribe Jen­nyany­dots.

“I felt so con­nected to her and re­ally fell in love with the part, so I was ob­vi­ously thrilled when I was of­fered it,” she said.

“She is very prac­ti­cal, car­ing and can be a lit­tle bit bossy at times to the kit­tens.

“I’ve got younger brothers and sis­ters so I have that kind of ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing a bit of a mother hen.”
