“Cats,” the blockbuster Broadway musical, is coming to town next week, courtesy of Drama Dock’s Youth Theatre Initiative.

The production, directed by Elizabeth Ripley, features 41 island teens and young people taking part in all the furry fun of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s epic musical, based on  “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” by T. S. Eliot.

The show, through music, dance and theatrical spectacle, tells the story of a wild tribe of cats called the Jellicles and includes the monster hit song, “Memory” as well as other showstoppers instantly familiar to musical theater fans.

“Cats” will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18 and 19, and 2 p.m. Sunday Oct. 20, at the Vashon High School theater. Tickets, $15 general admission, $10 for Drama Dock members and $5 for youth and seniors, are on sale now at the Vashon Bookshop. The show is expected to sell out.
