“You’ll understand what happiness is.”

With record-breaking runs on Broadway and London’s West End, this worldwide sensation is one of the most beloved musicals of all time. It’s a song and dance spectacular that will have you purring.

This will be the first made-in-Alberta production of this ground breaking musical. We’ll transform our theatre into a gigantic back alley of feline proportions! You’ll marvel at the spectacle of singing and dancing cats surrounding you in one of the greatest musicals ever.
