CATS Runs Til September 1st at Panasonic Theatre & CONTEST! (~OVER~)

The All-Canadian new production of CATS is running at the Panasonic Theatre in Toronto, and it has been held-over until September 1st, 2013!  It is based on "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' and Other Poems" by T.S. Eliot, and was composed by Andrew Lloyd Weber.  It first opened in London in 1981, where it ran for 21 years!  The new 20-member all-Canadian company of CATS is directed by Dave Campbell.
Toronto Cast of CATS
Do you remember the CATS the musical?  I remember being a child in my parent's car and hearing them play songs like Memory, The Rum Tum Tugger, Old Deuteronomy, and Grizabella: The Glamour Cat....all on tape cassette!  When I was a teenager, I was fortunate enough to see CATS on Broadway in New York City.  I'll always remember the amazing voices and jaw-dropping dance moves.  Over 30 years have passed  since those days, but I still could sing some of the CATS songs to you...it's that memorable.
Expect to Be Entertained By the Dancing & Singing in CATS!
Tickets to CATS are on-sale now at mirvish.com or by calling 1-800-461-3333.  Or find out more information by visiting the CATS Toronto website!

  1. I've never seen CATS the musical but I've always wanted to (yes, despite the reviews :p). I suppose as a cat lover (I used to have one and I miss her terribly) and of course musical theatre lover, I'm not sure how it could be all that bad. :) Keep up the great work!
