Visual and Performing Artists Create An Unforgettable Experience During the Children's Theater Production Of CATS

Thalian Association Children's Theater presents the beloved masterpiece CATS, based on the popular poetry of T. S. Eliot. CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theater phenomenon, Thalian Association presented CATS as a Wilmington premiere in its “Season of Firsts” in 2006.

Artists from the Wilmington Art Association will paint our young actors in the visually stunning and iconic makeup of the beloved characters for an exhibition in the lobby of the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center during the run of the play. The paintings will be on sale to the public with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Community Arts Center.

"Artists of the Wilmington Art Association (WAA) are excited to have an opportunity to be involved with CATS and Thalian Association," said Gale Smith co-President of the Wilmington Art Association. "WAA is supportive of all the Arts, including theater, and look forward to being among the young actors and capturing them in costume as they prepare for this musical theater production. What a creative way to bring the Visual Arts and the Performing Arts together! WAA is always seeking new opportunities to promote the Arts with the youth in our community; CATS is a perfect example of how we wish to be involved with our youth."

The Wilmington Art Association is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for area visual artists to gain community recognition through shows and exhibitions. It offers a forum wherein artists, local craftsmen, and people interested in the visual arts can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and contribute to the community. It provides educational programs, demonstrations, and lectures, which will lead to better public understanding and appreciation of visual arts. WAA 

Join the Jellicle Cats onstage and view the immortal characters on canvas for one weekend only May 14 through 17 at the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center, 120 South 2nd Street in downtown Wilmington. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7PM; Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3PM. For Tickets click on the link below.
