September 21 – 30, 2012

By Andrew Lloyd Webber
Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S.Eliot
Presented in the Studio Theatre

Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle Cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heavyside Layer. This true musical theatre phenomenon opened in London in May, 1981, and ran for a record-setting 21 years, which was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran for just over 18 years. Featuring the hauntingly stunning tune MEMORY. Come join us for our premier production in the new Performing Arts Center of Rapid City
