The Pleasanton Dinner Theatre will present a production of the long-running Broadway musical “Cats” on Nov. 9 and 10.

Based on T.S. Eliot’s book, “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” and set to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, “Cats” is an all-dance show set upon a rubbish dump, which comes alive with cats of all sizes, types and shapes after dark.

On this particular night, it’s the night of the Jellicle Ball and one cat will be chosen to ascend to Heaviside and have a chance at another life.
