Cats the Musical comes to Rugby College

7.12.2016 Performing arts students at Rugby College are staging the spectacular Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical Cats this December.

Cats rehearsal

Since Cats first opened on the West End stage in 1981, it has become one of the world’s best known and best loved musicals. Featuring music and lyrics by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical is based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Elliot, telling the story of an annual gathering of cats.


The show runs from Monday 12-Thursday 15 December at 7pm at the college’s purpose-built theatre and tickets are just £7.50 (£5.00 concessions) and can be bought online here or on the door on the night of the show.


Lecturer Ruth Ditch said, “The performing arts students have been rehearsing since September and we’ve also been supported by our hair and beauty and theatrical make-up students for the costumes and make-up.


“It’s a wonderful musical full of amazing songs such as ‘Memory’, so we hope local people will take the opportunity to come and support the stars of the future. It’s going to be a night of fantastic entertainment - a highlight of the festive period!”
