ABOUT THE SHOW: CATS

One of the world’s best-known and meow-velous musicals! The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life. Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber; Based on Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Check back to see how the show is brought to life at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre.

DIGITAL PLAYBILL

Once the show has opened, you can CLICK HERE to access the show’s Digital Playbill. Why digital and not printed? This decision had many factors that went into it including the reduction of our paper footprint in an effort to be more climate-conscious as well as budgetary restrictions coming out of the pandemic. Digital Playbills remain archived long-term and can be accessed HERE.

MEDIA AND MARKETING

From promotional and production video trailers to local television and radio spots, you’ll find it all here.
