BROADWAY PALM IS LENDING A HELPING PAW TO THE ANIMAL REFUGE CENTER!
Broadway Palm is currently presenting Andrew Lloyd Webber’s fantastical musical CATS playing through November 23, 2013. During the run of the show, Broadway Palm is selling “paws” for $1 each and all proceeds go directly to the Animal Refuge Center (ARC). Theatre patrons are encouraged to decorate the paws and they will be on display throughout the theatre.
ARC is a 501c(3) corporation whose purpose is to promote the adoption of spayed/neutered pets into responsible homes, to provide outreach veterinary assistance, to provide interim shelter and medical care to homeless, injured or abandoned animals, to provide community education and public awareness as to the needs and care of animals, to develop an advocacy program on behalf of animals and pet owners in the community, to alleviate suffering animals whenever possible, and to uphold the philosophy of non-euthanasia of any healthy animals accepted to the shelter.
The Broadway Palm stage has been transformed into a larger than life abandoned amusement park that is inhabited by a special breed of cats knows as Jellicle Cats. It’s the night of the Jellicle Ball and the entire cat clan gathers for the annual event where the admired elder, Old Deuteronomy, will choose the most deserving cat to ascend with him for a heavenly reward and reclaim a new life. One by one, we learn about each cat’s personalities and discover that cats are very much like people; unique in their own ways. The award-winning score includes The Jellicle Ball, Rum Tug Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees and Memory.
CATS is playing at Broadway Palm now through November 23, 2013. Performances are Wednesday through Sunday evenings with selected matinees. Beginning in November, performances are Tuesday through Sunday evenings with selected matinees. Be sure to check out the upscale dinner theatre experience on Saturday nights.
