Cats takes to the Blackpool stage

Date Posted: 18/03/2015

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical will be performed in Blackpool following its West End run.

The musical will run at the Blackpool Opera House between 9th July and 6th September.

The show was adapted for the stage from T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, and tells the story of a group of Jellicle cats who meet once a year for the Jellicle Ball.

On this night, their leader, wise old Deuteronomy must choose which of them will go up to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn to a new life.

Cats has a successful history in Blackpool. It was first staged in the city in 1989 for a sixth month run.
