“Are you mean like a minx? Are you lean like a lynx? Are you keen to be seen when you’re smelling a rat? Were you there when the pharaohs commissioned the Sphinx? If you were and you are you’re a Jellicle Cat”


CATS is one of the most iconic and loved musicals of all time. Since taking the West End and Broadway by storm in 1981 the songs of the Jellicles, based on the poems of TS Eliot, have delighted and entranced theatre lovers young and old around the world. Now the award-winning Festival Players bring the full CATS experience to Cambridge for the very first time with a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s feline musical masterpiece.

Discover, or re-discover, the tails(!) of the most charismatic cats ever to assemble under the Jellicle Moon. Macavity, Mr Mistoffelles, The Rum Tum Tugger, Grizabella, Skimbleshanks and many others share their stories, their friendships and their conflicts and reveal just a tiny glimpse into the secret world of Jellicle Cats.

Join us at the Mumford Theatre from 7-16 June 2018 and let the Memory live again.
