A new day has begun

After taking a well-earned rest last year, FMS Youth Group joined forces with the Belfast School of Performing Arts (BSPA).

Cats logoOn Saturday 7 May 2016, they presented two performances of Cats in the Theatre at the Mill, led by the BSPA teachers.

Based on T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set in a junkyard playground alive with feline characters. The Jellicle Cats come out to play on the night of the Jellicle Ball, telling their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise leader.

Cats is one of the longest running shows in both Broadway and the West End, and contains well-loved songs such as:

  • Macavity, the Mystery Cat
  • Mr Mistoffelees, and the unforgettable
  • Memory (see what I did there?).
