THE: Cats at The Point!!!
CATS Pounces On Stage Friday
Andrew Lloyd Weber's whimsical musical "Cats" pounces onto The Point Theatre outdoor stage Friday, July 9 at 8:30 p.m. The play, which will be produced for the first time in the Hill Country, is directed by Jim Weisman, who brought to the stage last summer's hits, "Treasure Island", Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," and 2008's "Robin Hood."
Opening night festivities include a pre-show reception at 7 p.m. in the gallery in honor of the current exhibit Hill Country Chronicles.
The Tony Award winning musical is the second longest running show on Broadway and is based on T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats." The show is appropriate for all ages.
"Cats" follows seven generations of cats that have gathered for a family reunion and celebration called the Jellicle Cats Ball. The Point cast includes 18 adult cats and 9 kittens.
CART Services for the hearing impaired will be offered at the Saturday, July 10 performance. Family Night is Sunday, July 11 when all tickets are priced at only $8. For more information, call the box office at 830-367-5121 or visit www.hcaf.com.
