WOW!'s next show will be “CATS” which will run from 12-17 February 2018.

Based on T.S. Eliot’s whimsical collection of poems, “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats”, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical brings together a tribe of Jellicle Cats on a moonlit evening, who must make the “Jellicle choice” to decide which of them will ascend to the mysterious Heaviside Layer to be reborn.

Featuring such celebrated standards as the haunting “Memory,” CATS became an international phenomenon. The show first appeared on the London stage in 1981 and went on to become the longest running musical both in the West End and on Broadway. A magical, moving, and often hilarious glimpse into the lives of others, CATS takes Eliot’s lyrical poetry and puts it into the mouths of a diverse company of singing, dancing felines.
