The audience at the Gaiety Theatre, Douglas were gripped to their seats while watching the global theatrical phenomenon Cats.
The message from Taylorian Productions was ‘prepare to be amazed’ and that is certainly what happened.
The spectacular set and costumes, that were all made from scratch, were to a high standard and their make up was just as good.
This is the first time the Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical has been staged in the Isle of Man and it was definitely worth the wait.
People of all ages attended the musical, which was definitely the cat’s whiskers.
It was clear from the high quality performance how much time and energy the cast had put into the musical.
Even the younger cats or ‘kittens’ as you may call them, were delighted to be on the stage and looked adorable in their costumes.
Although the memorable music was featured, the Manx cats had their own choreography as they made the production their own.
Cats first opened on the West End stage in 1981, and has become one of the world’s best known and best loved musicals.
The musical takes place in a junk yard where the local cats are auditioning to be the one chosen by their leader, Old Deuteronomy, to journey to the Heavyside Lair to be ‘reborn’ into a new life.
Cats is on stage until Saturday.
If you have an opportunity to go and see Cats, I would recommend that you should get your paws on tickets while you have the chance. It is a must-see for all the family.
Tickets are from £22, with concessions available. Call 600555 or 694500.
