A classic of modern musical theatre

come one, come all!

After an exciting revival on Broadway in 2016, the first since its marathon 18-year run, the Cats is finally heading out on tour, bringing the feline frolics to a town near you! Full of musical theatre classics (Memory, MaCavity, The Rum Tum Tugger to name a few), spectacular and instantly recognizable costumes, and dance numbers and bursting with cat-itude, this iconic show is purrfect for newcomers and old-timers.

Created by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh in 1981, Cats is based on poet T.S Elliot's 1939 anthology, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, a guide to all kinds of cats from the streetwise stray to the pampered lap cat. This revival retains direction from Trevor Nunn and revised choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler after Gillian Lyne.


Once a year, a local tribe of street cats, all with their own distinct names and personalities, come together for the legendary "Jellicle Ball". Here they entertain each other, tell stories, and listen to wisdom given by their elderly and respected leader, Old Deuteronomy.

Halfway through, their gathering is interrupted by the tattered and torn Grizabella. Repulsed by her sorry state, the Jellicle Cats shun her and chase her off, despite the pleas of Old Deuteronomy to show compassion. But what happens when their beloved leader is catnapped by the dastardly master-cat of crime, MacAvity (think a feline version of Moriarty!)? Will the Jellicle cats be able to save him? And WHO is the mysterious Mr. Mistoffelees?

Cats got an exciting guest star during its recent Broadway run, the one and only Grumpy Cat made his stage debut with a brief appearance with the cast!
