As the curtain closes on the London Palladium season of Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking 2015 Olivier Award nominated musical Cats is set to return to Blackpool. The hit show will run at the Blackpool Opera House for a strictly limited eight week run starting on 9 July.
Cats has had a successful history in Blackpool, having an unprecedented six-month run at the Opera House in 1989. It then returned to wow audiences in 2003 as part of a national tour.
Councillor Graham Cain, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Tourism and Leisure, said; “I am thrilled to be welcoming Cats back to Blackpool. It has enjoyed huge success in the West End with a sell-out run at the London Palladium so for Blackpool now to be the chosen location as the show leaves the capital is great.”
“The Opera House is the only North West theatre and indeed, the only place north of London where people will be able to see Cats in the UK this year so we are delighted.”
Cats will be at Blackpool Opera House from Thursday 9 July to Sunday 6 September. Tickets are priced from £20 and are on sale now.
