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.

This was our first time at this theater and they did a very nice job with this classic musical. Cast was overall very good. The two female leads were both terrific as actors as well as singers. Also loved the performance by the Nathan Detroit character, but the Sky Masterson actor was just not very convincing. The rest of the large cast filled their roles with lots of positive energy and made for a very enjoyable and entertaining show.

The beloved Broadway musical comedy, based on “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown” and other short stories by Damon Runyon, comes to the La Habra Depot Theatre. Featuring memorable songs like “Luck Be A Lady,” the fast-paced Guys and Dolls features a colorful cast of characters from New York’s gambling underworld, as well as the women who love them.
Since its Broadway premiere in the early 1950s, this popular show has been revived numerous times, picking up numerous Tony nominations along the way.
About the Ticket Supplier: La Habra Depot TheatreThe La Habra Community Theatre began in 1976 as a Children's Theatre project of the City's newly established Cultural Arts Council. The first production was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It was performed in La Habra High School's lecture hall since the city did not have a Community Performing Arts Facility.
At the same time, the 1909 Pacific Electric Depot building stood empty and in danger of demolition if it was not restored to a functional role in the community. Planning for its renovation as a Community Performing Arts Facility was initiated by the Mayor of La Habra and supported by the City Council as well as many community members. The "train station", or depot, was then moved across the street to its current location in Portola Park to integrate it into the master plan for the redevelopment of downtown La Habra.
Funding to restore the depot and convert it to a Theatre came largely from the Federal Government Restoration of Historical Landmarks. "The Depot" was declared Orange County Historical Landmark Site #14.
In January of 1980, the Children's Theatre project was expanded to incorporate adult theatre. Then, in July of 1982, the 100 members of the Community Theatre moved into the Depot Playhouse. The first performance in the restored building was the musical Oklahoma. On August 15, 1995 the Depot Playhouse became a non-profit tax-exempt organization and officially became know as Depot Theatre of La Habra. The theatre's board of directors and all production committees are comprised of community volunteers. The Depot Theatre is one of the few community organizations which functions without a single paid staff member.
