Parent, Jennifer Keaveny reviews the middle school production, starring feline creatures from Remove to Upper 4:
Cats! was absolutely brilliant and was well received by the audience. From the moment the music started the video installation gave us an inside look at the work that has been going on behind the scenes at rehearsals. The audience was then effortlessly transported into the dark and mysterious world of Cats. The costumes were enhanced by the skills of the make-up artists who transformed the cast into feline creatures making it impossible to determine the true identity of the cast. The whole performance was seamless and professional and the lead from the director coupled with the input of the behind the scenes support staff has to be acknowledged. Their drive and enthusiasm has obviously encouraged the cast to achieve an outstanding visual performance of music and dance.
Overall this was a musical to be enjoyed by all. Cats initially premiered in 1981, yet this production is fresh and it is obvious how hard the staff and pupils have worked to put on this musical extravaganza.
