CATS by Andrew Lloyd Webber is presented by Sierra Investments Ltd.

CATS is based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. The musical tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as "the Jellicle choice" and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

Since its world premiere, CATS has been presented in over 30 countries, and has been seen by over 73 million people worldwide.

It has won many awards, including Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards, and is considered among the all-time favourites of musical theatre fans.

This new production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece will visit 16 cities nationwide in April and May 2019.
