‘Cats the Musical’ was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and is based on ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ written by T. S. Eliot (a collection of whimsical poems about feline psychology and sociology).  This ambitious project was chosen as the next production by our ‘Flash’ Musical Theatre Group which consists of students in Years 7 to 10, collaborating with our BTEC Dance students. ‘Flash’ Musical Theatre Group meet weekly to learn a variety of theatrical skills and perform pieces from well known musical theatre shows.  Many parents will remember the fabulous production of ‘Annie’ last year.  This year’s production of ‘Cats’ also featured very special guests from Trinity St Peter’s and Freshfield primary schools.   There were three incredible shows over two days featuring purrrrfect dance and vocal performances which left the audiences in awe of the young talent.  Mr Mackenzie, who attended both performances on Saturday, said “Congratulations to the cast and backstage team for ‘Cats’ – your performance was absolutely phenomenal.  Well done!”.
