A Slice of Saturday Night
Performed: May, 2011
Review by the Bolton News
CATS Youth Theatre put on toe tapping show stopping performance as they brought A Slice of Saturday Night to the stage.
The production was quality and simply stunning and well suited to this young talented cast who made this ambitious and challenging musical look effortless. Set in a 1960s nightclub, it explores the issues of young people facing adulthood.

The Wiz
Performed: November, 2010
Based on L Frank Baum’s children’s tale, The Wiz offers a different look at how Dorothy found her three friends and eventually ends up meeting The Wiz in a bid to get back home. The film starred the late Michael Jackson and Diana Ross amongst others but has been translated to an upbeat stage show which has become a modern classic particularly within youth theatre.

Sweeney Todd
Performed: May, 2010
“STEVEN Sondheim’s claustrophobic tale of revenge and murder is a danse macabre of terrifying proportions, and so it would be fair to wonder whether the young actors at CATS could channel the necessary bile to convey the dark Victorian spirit of these underworld characters.”
