Andrew Lloyd Webber’s magnificent musical CATS prowls back into Melbourne this summer, in a reworked performance set to entertain theatre goers young and old over the festive season.
Musical CATS at the Regent Theatre
This 2015 Olivier Award-nominated hit revival opens in Melbourne at the Regent Theatre on 18 December, following a triumphant return to London's West End.
The family-friendly musical, based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, is set amongst a larger than-life junkyard playground. The story follows the Jellicle Cats as they come out to play on one special night of the year; the night of the Jellicle Ball.
Delta Goodrem will lead the cast in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney, playing the role of glamour-cat Grizabella. Delta will show off her vocal skills performing the infamous song from the feline themed musical 'Memory'.
This hit revival also introduces a rapping ‘street cat’ to the show, in the famous Rum Tum Tugger role, who will perform some hip-tastic break dance moves on stage.
Take the children along to meet favourite feline characters Rum Tum Tugger and Grizabella, along with Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy and Skimbleshanks. You and your children will be in awe of the remarkable stage set, fabulous choreography, and quirky costumes.
