Overture Lyrics by CATS
Overture by CATS
Suddenly an explosion of lights and music fills the theatre,
revealing a larger-than-life junkyard. Probing car lights
tear across the darkened landscape of bottles and boxes,
briefly catching the darting image of a running feline.
One by one, the curious cats emerge. Tonight is the one special
night each year when the tribe of Jellicle Cats reunites to
celebrate who they are. The cats emerge singing of their unique
abilities and special traits in a fusion of poetry and dance.
