Three casts featuring more than 80 students from the Tampa Bay area are appearing in the Broadway classic Cats. The students are enrolled in Corbett Prep's Community School of the Arts, which offers performing arts opportunities as well as music, drama and dance lessons to students at Corbett Prep and the greater community.
The Community School of the Arts production runs over two weekends, featuring a high school cast May 2-4 and elementary and middle school casts May 9-11. Cats is a family friendly show that tells its stories through Andrew Lloyd Webber's music that was based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot.
Director Seth Travaglino and Corbett Prep's facilities staff began transforming Gatlin Hall with a stage, set and lights on April 26 to prepare for tech rehearsals as opening night approached. Check out the behind-the-scenes work here:
The performances of Cats all take place in Gatlin Hall at Corbett Prep, 12015 Orange Grove Dr., Tampa.
