63. Opening Night Audience Raves About Cats at BHS

Home Newsroom 63. Opening Night Audience Raves About Cats at BHS

The audience is raving after opening night of the Barrington High School production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Cats.   It’s the last major BHS musical theater production for the school’s retiring Choral Director Nancie Tobison and she is really leaving a lasting musical impression with a performance for all ages that wows from start to finish.

They hired a professional makeup artist to teach the students how to apply their masks and I’m told the makeup alone takes three hours to prepare before each performance.

Here are some of the comments heard from the audience on opening night…

“Ellen Werksman of the Midwest Dance Collective has taught these students dance moves that will amaze you.  When you see what these performers are capable of doing on stage, it’s beyond incredible.  It’s beyond a high school production.”

“The makeup and costumes look like they’re straight from a Broadway show.”

“I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats!”
