Caistor Amateur Theatrical Society (CATS) has been taking centre stage with an action-packed year of events.

Members reviewed the past year at the group’s AGM in the Caistor Town Hall arts centre.

The year started with a social evening in February, with entertainment from the comedy Bell Book and Candle.

And this was followed by a stall at the mayor’s fair in April where £142 was raised for CATS funds.

In spring, a murder, mystery and dinner evening was a huge success as was ‘Death of a Diva’ performed by Young CATS.

The year ended with Mother Goose, directed by Mike Cluff, who said he believed it was the “slickest” panto produced for a number of years -vwith audience figures up on the previous year, despite the recession.

As chairman, Mr Cluff thanked the committee and members for their support and help over the year, as well as the individuals and organisations who support the society.

The presentation of the Young CATS Person of the Year was made during the evening and this year’s winner was Ellie Perry.

Ellie was voted as the winner by both young and adult members of CATS.

She received the award for showing skills as a real team player, being someone who supports and encourages others and always setting a high standard of behaviour.

The next CATS production is a ‘rip-roaring and extremely funny’ murder thriller, to be performed on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25.

Anyone over 18 is welcome to attend the casting and read through at Caistor Town Hall on February 22.
