Theatre night brings Shakespeares classics to life

EXCERPTS from Shakespeare, Swan Lake and Madame Butterfly are set to be performed by members of Ipswich-based Community Access and Transition Service (CATS).

Members from CATS have been rehearsing since March, and are ready to get up on stage and entertain friends and family. The production, which celebrates this year's International Day of People with Disability, will feature skits adapted from some great theatre classics, including Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet.

CEO of CATS Inc Katrina Johnson said the performance was a great opportunity for the young people to showcase their talent.

"This performance by the CATS Inc Players is a fun and positive initiative that has helped our young people build relationships, develop various skills and increase their confidence," Ms Johnson said.

Suitable for all ages, the two-hour production will be held at Ipswich Little Theatre on Friday, November 30 at 10am.
