Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking 2015 Olivier Award-nominated musical Cats returns to the Royal Concert Hall Nottingham direct from its sell-out seasons at the London Palladium.

It can be seen there for two weeks, from Tuesday, July 26, until Saturday, August 6.

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Cats first returned to the West End in December 2014 reuniting the original creative team of director Trevor Nunn, associate director and choreographer Gillian Lynne, designer John Napier and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Following a second season at the London Palladium this Christmas the production will embark on a new tour into 2016.

On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

Cats, which is one of the longest-running shows in the history of the West End and on Broadway, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances.

The production was the winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical.

Cats is at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall from Tuesday, July 26 to Saturday, August 6.

Tickets to see it are £15-£39.50 plus concessions.
