The magnificent musical score composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is a ground-breaking musical that comes together in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse and includes the poignant hit song ‘Memory’. Alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr Mistoffelees, Macavity, Old Deuteronomy and Grizzabella to name but a few, ‘CATS’ is quite simply a phenomenon.
The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the cats to ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
