Map & Driving Directions
Don't miss the return engagement of this enchanting tale to Tuacahn as performed by a talented cast of professional dancers and singers. The costumes and settings promise to be nothing short of spectacular.
"With a solid cast of gifted singers and gracefully agile dancers, this outdoor production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' is well worth the drive to the southwestern corner of Utah." -Deseret News (from the review of Tuacahn's 2006 production of Cats)
Back by popular demand, Andrew Lloyd Webber's astoundingly successful musical comes to life once again on the outdoor amphitheatre stage in an event for the entire family.
A junkyard marks the setting for the annual reunion of the Jellicle cats at the Jellicle Ball as the eldest of their special breed of cats, Old Deuteronomy, seeks to select which of the many cats in the neighborhood will be reborn to begin another life. Each of the potential cats, such as Jennyanydots, Rum Tum Tugger, and Bustopher Jones pleads his or her case to Old Deuteronomy. Ultimately, it is Grizabella's plea for a new life that wins the old cat over. This moment marks one of the show's highlights when Grizabella sings "Memory," one of the most popular and most-recorded songs in the world, to express her determination.
