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 exactly what I expected, and very good for small low budget theatre.
Yes, they picked the adaptation because of a book that many high schooler read these days, and there were bus loads of teens at the show. Yes, there were a few roles that were performed less than well that professional level
- BUT the main roles were great, and it was wonderful to see a play that appealed to a younger crowd. For the price, I thought this performance delivered what it promissed. Minimal sets, interesting story, worth seeing.

From the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry
Adapted by Eric Coble
Directed by Janet Miller
Phantom Projects Theatre Group presents the Southern California premiere of The Giver, based on the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry. The wildly popular book is read in middle schools and high schools throughout the U.S., and remains a very popular book for parents and teens.
The play follows 11-year-old Jonas, who seems to live in a perfect world. Everything is under control and safe; there is no war or fear or pain. But there are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver: to receive and keep the memories of the community.
The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life — and the hypocrisy of his Utopian world. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.
