Blackpool residents are getting a special thank you from the cast of the Opera House’s summer musical.

With just a paw-ful of performances left until the show’s closing night, the team at the Winter Gardens and the cast and crew of Cats are putting on a special show on Thursday afternoon.

With a copy of today’s Gazette, residents can buy two tickets for the price of one from the Winter Gardens’ box office on Church Street, for the matinee show at 2.30pm.

Thousands of theatregoers have been left mesmirised by the West End hit production, and the scale of the energetic dance numbers, stunning set and dazzling set.

A Winter Gardens’ spokesman said: “Cats enters its final week after an incredible eight-week season at the Opera House Blackpool.

“To celebrate its success we’re offering two-for-one tickets to a selected performance to say thank you for your support in making it a success.

“The support of local business and residents is invaluable in the promotion shows across resort and this year they have surpassed themselves in help making Cats an incredible success.

“As a gesture we have added a performance on Thursday afternoon where local residents can take advantage of all tickets being made available two-for-one, and we hope as many people from across the resort can see the musical before it closes on Saturday.”

The show has been well received by fans and critics alike, with high praise for leading lady Jane McDonald.

Cats runs at the Opera House until Saturday, with its remaining performances tonight, tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
