CATS Musical To Help SPCA

CATS Musical To Help SPCA

Gettysburg Community Theatre, the non-profit 501c3 organization located in the original Elks Lodge building at 49 York Street within the first block of Lincoln Square in historic downtown Gettysburg, announces their cast of their upcoming production of CATS the musical, which will be a special fundraiser as a portion of every ticket sale will go to the Adams County SPCA.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber hit musical CATS, based on T.S. Elliot's "Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats", is currently celebrating a Broadway Revival in NYC, but audiences may be very interested in seeing an all new concept production of this musical right here in Gettysburg for less than half the price of a Broadway ticket. This new concept of an all youth cast production of this blockbuster musical begins with children of today discovering a large pile of books from what seems to be abandoned, vacant remnants of a book store, and as they read, their imaginations run wild creating the various cat characters from T.S. Elliot's poems. Performing Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm September 15th-October 1st, this production of CATS at Gettysburg Community Theatre is directed by GCT Founding Executive/Artistic Director, Chad-Alan Carr and Kate Sainer, one of the many talented Teaching Artists of GCT. The cast includes an all youth cast of 40 children ages 4-18 from six different counties including: from Gettysburg: Jezebel Abma, Ellen Cadigan, Max Carlson, Harrison Crow, Hannah Green, Stephanie Green, Kalia Hoedemaker, Lilliana Hoedemaker, Gaven M. Jones, Paul Kennedy, Spencer K. Kennedy, Emma Kirk, Emma Landis, Giada Langville, Audrey Norwood, Gabriella Scavitto, Audrey Trax, Tessa Trax, Rachel Wessell; from New Oxford: Mina Gladson, Stella Gladson, Grace Anne Rufalo; from Gardners: Natalie Witherow Hurwitch; from Littlestown: Keira D. Lee, Aubrey Hancock, and Jordyn Willis; from Fairfield: Linden Carbaugh; from York Springs: Aurora Hicks; from Dillsburg: Katherine Murray; from Hanover: Alyna Brininger, Madison Prin, Amaris Swisher, and Brenna Yingling; from Waynesboro: Gaven Dingle; from Fayetteville: Aidan Higgins; from Emmitsburg: Richard Coursey and Madelyn Greco; from Mechanicsburg: Katie Latta; and from Hampstead, MD: Carly Victor.

CATS was a big hit in its original productions on Broadway and in London, and currently has a revival production on Broadway closing soon.

"Many of the GCT cast of children will be taking a bus trip to NYC this month", says Carr, "to see the current Broadway revival production before performing in their own production of CATS here at GCT in September. But this youth production is like no other children's show you have ever seen before. It really can be more than just amazing dancers and choreography. It is really about storytelling, and imagination. It is after all, based on a book of poems."

Tickets to CATS are $18 +tax/fees each. Reserved seating tickets are available in advance online or via phone or at the door if seats are available in GCT's very intimate 80 seat theatre. As always at GCT, the lemonade, water, coffee, popcorn, and air conditioning is all complimentary. GCT is located at 49 York Street within the first block of Lincoln Square in historic downtown Gettysburg in the building that was once The Elks Lodge. GCT box office phone number is 717-334-2692. Audition, ticket, educational, donation, volunteer opportunities and more can be found online at www.GettysburgCommunityTheatre.org
