CATS 2013 tour

Confirmed tour dates include:

Edinburgh Playhouse: 8th February to 2nd March
His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen: 4th to 16th March
Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton: 19th to 30th March
Manchester Opera House: 2nd to 20th April


CATS is based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, with direction by Trevor Nunn and choreography by Gillian Lynne.

Billed as an enchanting blend of fantasy, romance and drama, on just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball.

It is here that Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to the heaviside layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
