Broadway Behind The Scenes: "Cats"
Take your troop to a theater workshop and Broadway production! Learn first-hand how Broadway actors and other world-class artists made it to the top, what life is like on the road, and how the production team creates “magic” on the stage.
Organized by community partners Arts Express, in partnership with Broadway in Tucson and UApresents, this day-long package includes a theater workshop with standout professional artists, lunch, a behind-the-scenes look at the show’s production, and admission to the matinee! All girls will receive an Arts Express fun patch.
About the Workshop: The 2017 Arts Express production of Cats was a magical show of epic proportions! The cast of this production will reunite to teach you the secrets of how to move like Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity or Rumpelteazer and take you on a journey through some of T.S Eliot’s poetry that created one of the longest running musicals in the world. It's going to be feline-ominal!
About the Production: Audiences and critics alike are rediscovering this beloved musical with breathtaking music, including one of the most treasured songs in musical theater—"Memory”. Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including BEST MUSICAL, CATS tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn. The original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber (Phantom, School of Rock, Sunset Boulevard), original scenic and costume design by John Napier (Les Misérables), all-new lighting design by Natasha Katz (Aladdin), all-new sound design by Mick Potter, new choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton) based on the original choreography by Gillian Lynne (Phantom) and direction by Trevor Nunn (Les Misérables) make this production a new CATS for a new generation!
