​More than 90% of tickets have already been sold for Newark Amateur Operatic Society’s up-coming production of Cats — and there are still six days to go until curtain-up.

Based on the hit West End show, it will be staged at Newark’s Palace Theatre from Tuesday to a week on Saturday.

Around 3,300 tickets have been sold across the week and both Saturday performances are almost sold-out.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats is based on the Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot.

The musical, which includes the hit song Memory, tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as the Jellicle choice and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

Rehearsals have been on-going for several months in preparation.

The society’s new creative director, Dean Skiba, is responsible for the dance routines that are at the heart of the show.

He is joined by new musical director Rupert Trippett.

Performances take place at 7.30pm, plus a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday.

Contact the Palace box office for tickets.
