Due to record sales, the Lutcher Theater is adding a second performance of CATS, Thursday, Jan 13, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. The show was added to the Lutcher season in November and went on pre-sale to the Lutcher Theater patrons email list on Monday, Dec.6. To date, very few balcony seats remain for the Friday, Jan. 14 performance resulting in the decision to book the second show.

Not only does the show star Matthew Taylor of Nederland, Texas as Rum Tum Tugger, but Beaumont boasts of Kathryn Holtkamp, who plays Grizabella. Kathryn’s grandmother, Betty Holtkamp and aunt, Kathryn Windsor, reside in Beaumont.
