The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year—the night of the Jellicle Ball. 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.Cats (Young Actors Audition) will be performed at Metz Middle School on Oct. 22 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m., and Oct. 23 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets will soon be sold at VirginiaARTfactory.org/Tickets.For more information on the show, please contact ARTfactory’s Director of Theatre Arts, Kimberly Kemp, at Kimberly@VirginiaARTfactory.org or call (703) 330-2787.For a complete listing of adult and children’s events, visit VirginiaARTfactory.org.Cats: Young Actors Edition is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Really Useful Group. concordtheatricals.comCATS: YOUNG ACTORS EDITIONMusic by Andrew Lloyd WebberBased on ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’ by T.S.
