CATS presented by The Arts
June 7 @ 7:00 pm - June 22 @ 10:00 pm
Come join us this summer and see one of the longest-running musicals on Broadway brought to life on the local stage! Southern Coalition for the Arts is proud to present Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “CATS”
Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favorite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks.
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.
Shows will take place June 7-8, 14-15, and 21-22 at 7 p.m., and June 9 at 3 p.m. All performances will take place at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College.
“CATS” is presented by arrangement with The Musical Company, LP.
