Dereham Theatre Company’s youth division (DOSYTco) brought Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s classic Cats to the town’s Memorial Hall this week.

The cast and crew, all aged between seven and 18, brought audiences to their feet with complex choreography and iconic songs from the musical.

It comes following months of rehearsals.

The inhouse set was created by a team of dedicated volunteers and the cast wore brand new custom costumes from Dereham Theatre Costumes.
