This evening my wife and I are going to see a production of CATS. The musical is being staged by the Central Wisconsin Educational Theatre Alliance, which is a consortium that includes student performers from Wausau East, Wausau West, D.C. Everest, Newman Catholic and Northland Lutheran high schools. Keith Uhlig of the Wausau Daily Herald reports "When area high school students perform 'Cats' at Wausau West High School, the production will feature big songs, big sets and big talent."

Combining the talents of young people from all over the Wausau area results in a level of performance that would be unattainable at one individual school. And this is true not only for the on-stage performers but support personnel as well. Previously the group had staged an excellent presentation of LES MISERABLES.

In addition to tonight's show, there are two performances tomorrow, as well as performances on 2/15, 2/16 and 2/17. An advance performance given to high school students showed their rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical to be a fabulous production. Be sure to see it if you're in the Wausau area the next couple weekends. And if you're not .... come on over!

And in a bit of nepotism, the Wausau Daily Herald photo I've included features my nephew. He's the guy standing at the left of the photo, attracting all the attention of the female felines!
