NEWS: Musical moggies on the prowl as ‘Cats’ arrives – Milton Keynes Theatre, October 2016


Feline-focused smash-hit musical Cats returns to Milton Keynes Theatre from Monday.

Back on tour after sell-out success at the London Palladium, the record-breaking show is the outstanding work of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, director Trevor Nunn, designer John Napier and director-choreographer Dame Gillian Lynne.

These talented creatives blew theatregoers away with their purrfect combination of innovative dance, beautiful music and charming verse when the production made its West End debut in 1981.


Cats of all colours, shapes and sizes share their stories in Cats the musical. The show was created by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, director Trevor Nunn, designer John Napier and director-choreographer Gillian Lynne.


Dame Gillian Lynne recalls:

It was a miracle that it caught everyone’s imagination as it did. It really was to our total amazement that it not only did well, it did better than any other show at the time and for such a long time afterwards. And here we are now, still bringing Cats to audiences today.

People see it and just fall in love with it. I’ve had people tell me they saw Cats years and years ago and now they are returning with their children to share the Cats experience with them. How lovely.


The beloved musical all about moggies is quite simply the cat’s whiskers so be ready to pounce at the box office and get your paws on one of the few remaining tickets!





Cats comes to Milton Keynes Theatre from Monday 24 to Saturday 29 October 2016.
