CATS

Birmingham Hippodrome 9-27 September


Don’t miss CATS, Andrew Lloyd-Webber's extraordinary record-breaking, smash-hit musical as it returns to the Birmingham Hippodrome.

Adapted from TS Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’, this wonderful blend of fantasy, drama and romance is set on the night that the Jellicle Cats meet for the Jellicle Ball in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse.

With an amazing musical score that includes the timeless “Memory”, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography, CATS is a magical musical like no other.

One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, CATS has enchanted audiences in over 300 cities around the world – now you too have the chance to experience this legendary musical phenomenon.
