CATS presents Miss Saigon
April 10th - May 10th
Nevada Theatre, Nevada City
Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS) celebrates its 20th Anniversary from April 10 to May 10 at the Nevada Theatre with the Tony award-winning musical, Miss Saigon.
Miss Saigon is from the creators of Les Misérables, by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, with lyrics by Boublil and Richard Maltby, Jr. Miss Saigon was originally produced on the stage by Cameron MacKintosh. The story is based on Giacomo Puccini's classic opera, Madame Butterfly. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War in the 1970’s, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had.
Susan Mason directs Miss Saigon with musical direction by Susan Mason and Jeffrey Mason.
