Cats is a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, and produced by Cameron Mackintosh. The musical tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as "the Jellicle choice" and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. Cats also introduced the song standard "Memory". The cats are at first suspicious and proud, reluctant to allow an audience into their domain. In “The Naming of Cats”, however, they begin to reveal who they are and that cats have three different names: the one the family uses daily, a more dignified name, and a secret name. It is the contemplation of these secret names that keeps felines deep in thought.
There is no doubt that you are going to have an exceptional production!
We are thrilled to have each and every one of you involved!
