Directed by Amy Beach

CATS, Jr. is a one-hour adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical, specially tailored for young actors.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical is an adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, a book of poetry written in the 1930’s. The poems were originally written in letters to his godchildren.

CATS, Jr. is set in a junkyard and includes all your favorite felines, including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Skimbleshanks and Grizabella. The Jellicle Cats gather together on one special night of the year: the night of the Jellicle Ball. Each Jellicle Cat tells their story to Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader. On this special night, Old Dueteronomy must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
