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.

The presentation was certainly educational, and we all learned new things about the local Native American tribes and how they lived.
The format was a bit disappointing, though. The narrator was the only one who spoke at all, and some of the demonstrations (food preparation, basket-making) seemed exceedingly brief and rushed, and were very difficult to see. This might not be a problem in a smaller venue, but from the balcony it was a bit frustrating.
The children will be captivated by all the indigenous instruments and will have the chance to observe the beauty of the Intertribal Pow Wow dancers. Children will walk away with an awareness of taking care of Mother Earth and getting in touch with their own unique heritage. This show will let you become a part of the past and realize the significance of many tomorrows to come!
