As much a cultural phenomenon as a theatrical event, Cats enjoyed a record-breaking run on Broadway and in London, thanks to its feline-inspired costumes, sets, dancing and memorable songs by famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story, inspired by a collection of poetry from T.S. Eliot, revolves around a tribe known as the Jellicle cats, and their leader Old Deuteronomy, who'll choose one of their group to be reborn that night after their annual ball. The longest-touring Broadway musical in history, Cats features 20 of Webber's timeless melodies, including the hit song "Memory," and was the winner of seven 1983 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Quotes & Highlights
“Bo Foxworth gives a great performance, both classically poised and wickedly intuitive.” —Los Angeles Times
“Bo Foxworth’s dramatic skills are so impressive he is completely convincing. His performance of our tragic conflicted hero conveys equal measures of regal majesty, sense of duty, and promise for revenge, with deep human suffering, despair, and feigned madness.” —Backstage West
Find yourself “Under the Stars” this summer at the beautiful 550-seat open-air Festival Amphitheatre as Shakespeare Orange County presents one of the Bard’s greatest tragedies, HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK, directed by Thomas F. Bradac. Be prepared to be transported to the world of Elsinore and the classic characters that we all know so well—Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Gertrude, and Polonius and others. Something is rotten in Denmark. Murder, corruption, and betrayal lurk in the shadows, resulting in the feigned insanity of a noble prince, the suicide of his beloved, and the fall of a great house. You’ll anxiously follow each twist and turn in a tale filled with madness that as a classic is extremely relevant to today’s world.
This season’s production features an award winning cast. Bo Foxworth returns to the Festival Amphitheatre in the title role after appearing as Angelo in last season’s production of Measure for Measure, and as McDuff in SOC’s 2003 production of MacBeth. Foxworth is an accomplished stage actor with film and television credits that include Law and Order, 21 Jump Street, Skin Deep, and Summer Dreams, the Story of the Beach Boys. Hamlet also features veteran actor and director Carl Reggiardo as Claudius, eleven-year Alabama Shakespeare Festival alum Evelyn Carol Case as Gertrude, and the award-winning Michael Nehring as Polonius.
