C.A.T.S. - Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society

C.A.T.S. originated from the Carlos Player, which were formed in the 1930's and performed in the Carlos Institute in Cheadle.In 1974, the Carlos Institute was demolished and the members moved their productions to the Lecture Theatre at Cheadle High Schhol. The group then changed their name to 'Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society' or 'C.A.T.S.' as we are now affectionately known.

Over the years, C.A.T.S has built up a reputation for award winning performances, both on and backstage and attracts its membership from both the local area and further afield. C.A.T.S. now has over 50 members, ranging from 11 years of age to nearly 80 years. During productions, Friends of C.A.T.S. assist backstage and Front of House, which swells the numbers to around 70 people. Everyone at C.A.T.S. is a volunteer.

Not only are our members talented actors, singers and dancers, but many are skilled in set design, scenery construction, wardrobe, costume, make-up and publicity. C.A.T.S. is always ready to offer its skills, equipment and support where possible. We support members by teaching all aspects of putting on a Theatrical Production, including stage and set design, make-up, voice coaching, acting, publicity and hospitality.

We also hold evenings for play readings. This gives anyone, who may not be ready to appear on stage, the opportunity to practice their skills. We also provide a safe environment for our younger members to meet, learn and explore all aspects of theatre. C.A.T.S. has recently created a 'C.A.T.S. Youth' section for 11 - 25 year olds.

C.A.T.S. is a member of N.S.D.A. (North Staffs Drama Association) and N.O.D.A. (National Operatic and Dramatic Association). Our plays and Pantomimes are adjudicated by N.S.D.A. and over the years, we have received many awards and nominations for acting, production and Front-of-House. The adjudications also help to improve performances and skills for future productions.

Until recently, C.A.T.S. has only perfomed a Pantomime in February, a play in October and a One Act Play in March, which is part of 'The All England One Act Festival,' and performed in Stoke-on-Trent. C.A.T.S. is delighted to announce that as well as these productions, we will be performing the One Act Plays in Cheadle and there will also be at least one production a year by 'C.A.T.S. Youth. This Christmas it will be 'The Railway Children - The Musical.' Exciting times are ahead!

Our productions are performed at the Cheadle Community Theatre at the Cheadle Academy and rehearsals take place at the Cheadle County Primary School. we are always interested to welcome new members, whether you want to appear on stage or help behind the scens.
