Theatre Review: Tabby McTat


Tabby McTat is a tabby cat with the loudest of mee-ows. He has a best friend, Fred, who is a busker with a guitar. On the streets they sing their favourite songs delighting the crowds, until one day, unbeknown to Tabby, Fred breaks his leg and gets taken to hospital. Now on his own, Tabby finds shelter and a new life with all the home comforts that any cat could dream of. All the time however the memories of his life with Fred haunt him, and he decides to search the streets for his long-lost best friend.

Including original songs, Tabby McTat is a most heart-warming tale of friendship and loyalty, which charms the children as well as the adults. The original story from which the musical is derived comes from the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales, as well as The Gruffalo, superstars Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler!

At The Royal Concert Hall it makes for an hour of lively and fun family entertainment, which kept all the audience spellbound. I cannot recommend it too highly!
