CATS presents Miss Saigon from April 10-May 10 in Nevada City

FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE TONY-AWARD WINNING MUSICAL Miss Saigon is coming to the Sierra Foothills this spring. Miss Saigon is being presented from April 10-May 10 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City.

“CATS is excited about bringing this musical to the foothills” for the group’s 20th anniversary production, says Executive Director Jeannie Wood.

Miss Saigon is from the creators of Les Misérables with music by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil and lyrics by Boubil and Richard Maltby Jr. The musical premiered on Broad- way in 1991 and has played in many other cities.

It is based on Giacomo Puccini’s classic opera, Madame But- terfly. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War in the 1970s, an American soldier and Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated by the fall of Saigon.

Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for a child he never knew was his.

CATS production of Miss Saigon is directed by Susan Mason, with musical direction by Susan and Jeffrey Mason. The cast includes local, regional and Bay Area talent. For tickets and information on events, visit CatsWeb.org.
