La Mirada~La Mirada theatre for the Performing Arts & McCoy Rigby Entertainment present the fourth production in its 2013-1014 season of shows with one of the most popular musical events of all-time, the Tony award-winning, CATS, music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” by T.S. Eliot, with musical direction by John Glaudini and directed and choreographed by Dana Solimando.  CATS will feature Kelly Provart as Grizabella and Todrick Hall (whose hilarious YOUTUBE video parodies have been seen by millions of viewers) as Rum Tum Tugger.

Based on the universally 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 theatre phenomenon, CATS opened at London's New London Theatre on May 11, 1981 and ran for a record-setting 21 years. CATS' London success was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran at the Winter Garden Theatre for just over 18 years.

CATS will preview on Friday, April 18, 2014 (with a press opening on Saturday, April 19) and run through Sunday, May 11, 2014.

Performances will be 7:30pm on Wednesdays & Thursdays; 8pm on Fridays; 2pm and 8pm on Saturdays; and 2pm on Sundays. (with two added Sunday evening performances;  May 4 and May 11 at 7:00pm).

There will be no matinee performance on Saturday, April 19.  Talkbacks with the actors will be on Wednesday, April 23 and Wednesday, May 7.

Tickets range from $20 - $70 and can be purchased at La Mirada Theatre’s website, www.lamiradatheatre.com or by calling the La Mirada Theatre Box Office at (562) 944-9801 or (714) 994-6310. Student, Senior and group discounts are available.

LA MIRADA THEATRE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS is located at 14900 La Mirada Boulevard in La Mirada, near the intersection of Rosecrans Avenue where the 91 and 5 freeways meet. Parking is free.

Jamison Jones, Amy Sloan, Maura Vincent and Hugo Armstrong star in the LA MIRADA THEATRE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS & McCOY RIGBY ENTERTAINMENT production of GOD OF CARNAGE, written by Yasmina Reza and directed by Michael Arabian.

La Mirada~With a talented cast and production team, the Tony Award-winning play God of Carnage was successful in its comedic ventures to keep audience members at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts completely riveted. Director Michael Arabian commits to the challenging task of staging French playwright Yasmina Reza’s complex and sagacious tale.

God of Carnage revolves around two sets of Brooklyn parents meeting to resolve an altercation between their eleven-year-old sons. As the play begins, tactful and polite exchanges are made, but by the end of the night, four professional adults find themselves at a stand-off with each other that test the limits of human nature.

The small cast of four, starring actors Hugo Armstrong, Jamison Jones, Amy Sloan, and Maura Vincent, demonstrated outstanding chemistry in a story with such unexpected twists and turns. Respectively, each actor portrayed their unique character in an impeccable manner. Landing one punch line after another, audience members spent most of the hour-and-half run in hysterical laughter. God of Carnage didn’t just keep the audience laughing, but contained various shocking, unpredictable moments that had them perplexed, yet excited. With a successful first weekend, God of Carnage is quickly becoming characterized as a must-see for all theater fanatics.

Performances are at 7:30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays; 8pm on Fridays; 2pm and 8pm on Saturdays; and 2pm on Sundays. Ticket prices range from $20-$70. For purchasing and information visit the La Mirada Theatre’s website at www.lamiradatheatre.com or call the La Mirada Theatre Box Office at (562) 944-9801 or (714) 994-6310. Discounts are available for students, seniors, and groups.
