---- — 1) Cats, Cats everywhere

The seven-time Tony Award winning Cats pounces onto the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre stage as the first musical in its 2014 Season.

Set in an alley behind a theatre in France, Cats brings audiences into the poetry of T. S. Eliot, whose “Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats” inspired the musical about frolicking felines gathering for the Jellicle Ball.

Featuring spectacular dancing, tumbling and acrobatics, amazing makeup and colorful costumes, Cats is an unforgettable experience in the intimate atmosphere of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre – where they are close enough to touch! Not just on stage. The frisky creatures are leaping onto and off of the stage, crawling through the aisles, and appearing all around, even overhead!

Cats is on stage for 59 performances through March 30. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet. Parking is always free.

For reservations, call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre Box Office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays.

2) Fiddling and step dancing

The April Verch Band comes to the Wells Center in downtown Lafayette at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
