Phoenix Productions is delighted to present their 2017 summer production of ‘Cats’, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s box office hit. Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, the show is set in a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger (Evan Lyons), Mr. Mistoffelees (Cameron Kelly), Macavity (Sam Rappoport), Jennyanydots (Rachel Butler), Old Deuteronomy (Richie Crowe), Skimbleshanks (James Corbett) and Grizabella (Katie Taylor) who sings the legendary hit song ‘Memory’.

Munkustrap (Gavin Murphy) guides us as we watch the Jellicle Cats come out to play for that one special night of the year – 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.

‘Cats’ marks Phoenix Productions’ 19th musical since they began in 1998 performing traditional classics such as ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’, ‘Oliver’ and ‘The Wiz’ as well as Broadway blockbuster hits such as ‘Les Miserables’, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and last year’s successful production of ‘Peter Pan’.

With a cast of nearly 50 young and talented teenagers supported by a professional production team you are in for a treat as you join them on their Journey to the Heaviside Layer.
