June 27-July 1, 2007

We had a joyful and magical time with the MTWichita premiere of the Andrew Lloyd Webber / T.S. Elliot classic. CATS was directed and choreographed by CATS veteran Dana Solimando (and her assistant Billy Johnstone – who was also quite delightful in the role of Skimbleshanks). Other guest stars included MTW favorites Garrett Long as Grizabella, and E. Mani Cadet as Old Deuteronomy. Nicholas Saverine joined the cast and was unforgettable as Gus, the Theatre Cat. The gorgeous music was brought to new life with the conducting of Thomas Wesley Douglas.

(We also had some unexpected drama when company member Stephanie Martignetti had to go on as Grizabella for two performances, with only a couple hours’ rehearsal! She was thrilling and terrific, and we so appreciate her keeping the show going until Garrett Long’s sudden throat virus passed!)
