Francis Goodhand - Cats


Francis Goodhand is the Musical Director for ‘Cats’ at Kilworth House.

We are ‘over the moon’ to announce that Kilworth House Theatre will be presenting an all new and exciting production of ‘CATS.’

The magnificent musical score composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is a ground-breaking musical that comes together in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse and includes the poignant hit song ‘Memory’. Alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr Mistoffelees, Macavity, Old Deuteromy and Grizzabella to name but a few. 'CATS’ is quite simply a phenomenon.

A magical musical like no other with breath-taking choreography, set and costumes 'CATS' at Kilworth' is going to be ‘the cats’ whiskers’ of shows set in the unique mystical glade that only Kilworth can offer.

The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year- the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the cats to ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

Since its world premiere in the New London Theatre in 1981, ‘CATS’ has been presented in over thirty countries and has been seen by more than 73 million people worldwide.

And now …………. 'CATS' are coming to Kilworth.
