Taking the Stage (Insane) is the second stage in Actress Awakens!.
Otta-smack-u and Dark Otter appear with a clump of Those Guys at the start of the battle. After defeating a few enemies, Those Guys, B.B.Bunny and Ginger Snache spawn non-stop, Otta-smack-u and Dark Otter appear as constant threats, and Owlbrow spawns at a slow rate after 40 seconds.
When the enemy base is damaged, the boss, Beefcake Cat, appears with a group of Angelic Gories, Heavenly Hippoes, Dark Otters and Owlbrows. Each time an enemy is defeated, an Angelic Gory, Heavenly Hippoe, Dark Otter or Owlbrow will come out of the base. After defeating most of the support (10 Angelic Gories, 6 Heavenly Hippoes, 6 Dark Otters and 4 Owlbrows), Celeboodle and Angelic Gory will spawn every 6.7~20 seconds and Those Guys will spawn at an increased rate.
Strategy 1 (Lure strategy w/ Cat CPU):
All cats should at least be level 30.
Items required: Cat CPU
Start the stage by turning off Cat CPU. Stall the beginning peons with Paris Cat while maxing out the Worker Cat. It is important that you do not send out too many attackers on the field, or else they will push through and hit the enemy base before you can save enough money. When you are ready, just send out a few more attackers along with some light meatshields. Let the Beefcake Cat come towards the Cat Base, and turn on the CPU when it has passed midway of the battlefield.
