Youth Onstage presents ‘Cats’

Youth Onstage presents the musical, Cats from July 9-11 at the VanTrease PACE on the Southeast Campus of TCC as the closing show in their 2014-2015 season. Tickets are available from the Vantrease PACE Box Office and will be $10 for adults, $8 for children and seniors.

Based on the poetry of T.S. Eliot, Cats tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside Layer. Cats opened at London’s New London Theatre on May 11, 1981, and ran for a record-setting 21 years. The London success of Cats was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran at the Winter Garden Theatre for over 18 years.

Directors Alanna Woods and Beth Cruice are both former Youth Onstage actors. Woods choreographs this production as well. The cast and crew are all members of Youth Onstage, making this production completely student directed and performed.

Youth Onstage is an all-volunteer, teen acting troupe celebrating its 15th season of service to the Tulsa metro community.

Performances will be July 9-11 at 7:30 pm, and July 11-12 at 2 pm. Tickets may be purchased at the VanTrease PACE Box office by calling 918-595-7777 or online at www.myticketoffice.com.
