Curiouser and curiouser for CATS’ young performers
The summer production of CATS Youth Theatre Group will be Alice, the Musical, it was announced last week.
At the annual meeting of Caistor Amateur Theatrical Society on Friday, director Patricia Refearn outlined her plans for the summer production.
There will be an audition day on Saturday, February 21 at 10.30am in Caistor Town Hall. Youngsters aged between ten and 21 are invited to attend, and will have the chance to be considered for a role, being part of the chorus, or merely assisting the production team. A minimum cast of 20 people would be required.
The performances are due to take place in August on the 20th, 21st and 22nd, with rehearsals on most Saturdays and Sundays from March 8 onwards.
“Alice, the Musical is becoming a popular show to do,” said Patricia. “It is based on Alice in Wonderland.
“This will give people a chance to see another side of CATS and let them grow in confidence and meet new friends.”

At the annual meeting, Caistor Grammar School pupil Charlotte Marshall was awarded the title of CATS Youth Group “Person of the Year” and awarded with a trophy. Her name has been added to a presentational CATS shield. Mike Cluff, William Smith and Janet Freeman all declared their willingness to stand and were elected as chairman, secretary and treasurer respectively. Catherine Marshall was elected as a new member of the committee.
Plans were also unveiled for an evening of light entertainment at the Town Hall on February 21, on the theme of “couples”, and for a production on May 15th and 16th, directed by Pam Cluff and Janet Freeman, about a radio station.
The annual meeting voted to keep membership fees the same at £6 per adult, £4 for concessions and children, and £15 per family per year in a bid to make membership accessible to everyone.
