Cats comes to York Opera House

Pick Me Up Theatre presents:


Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Directed by Ali Kirkham

Starring Joe Wawrzyniak as Asparagus and Ellie Hall as Bombalurina

One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history – the original production played at the New London Theatre for 21 years.

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the musical tells the stories of the Jellicle Cats who come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball.

The show is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks.

One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

The score includes the show-stopping Memory, which was a big hit for Barbra Streisand, as well as Elaine Paige, who played Grizabella in the original West End production.
