About the show:

“CATS: Young Actors Edition” is a brief adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical, specially tailored for young actors.  Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Based on Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot / CATS is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with purr-fect felines, including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Skimbleshanks and Grizabella. 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.

Majestic’s CATS: Young Actors Edition stars children and teens of The Majestic Academy of Dramatic Arts under the Direction of Becca Antonakos-Belanger, Assisted by Harley Cassady with Musical Assistance by A. Robert Dionne.
