    On March 1-4, 2012, Our fellow students took on the longest running show in broadway history: “Cats.” The show, based ON a book of poems by t.s. Eliot, features a bunch of cats singing and dancing around, hoping to “be reborn.” Reflecting on the show, which has already come and gone, Casey Mcginty admits, “it was the hardest show i’ve ever done. ever. but i wouldnt have picked a different show to wrap up my senior year. it was tough, but worth it.”
