Last Chance for Cats

Posted on

This is your last chance to see the musical Cats at the Benedum Center – it closes this weekend! So head on over to the Carlton for a wonderful dinner with family and/or friends and we’ll drive you over to the show.  Hope to see you tonight!

There’s no better way to introduce your family to the wonders of live theater than with the magic, the mystery, the memory of CATS. What began as a musical about cats after Andrew Lloyd Webber picked up a book of poems in an airport bookshop has become one of the longest running shows in Broadway’s history. Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, CATS features 20 of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s timeless melodies, including the hit song “Memory.”
