Cats @ The Regal Theatre

A little while ago I went to see the theatre production Cats at the Regal Theatre. I went by myself and got a great seat in the middle, six rows from the front.
It's always been a dream of mine to see Cats. I taped it off of TV when I was young, and watched it over and over. Sadly, I came from such a poor family that it was impossible for us to go to the theatre. Especially to see something as great as Cats.
Now, I'm a independent woman with my own money so I can spend it where I want!

Cats was everything I wanted it to be. The costumes were lovely, in a 1940s style. The music was wonderful! It was such a dream come true that I might of been fighting tears at the start ;)

The Regal Theatre is in Subiaco, the suburb where I grew up. It used to be a great place, filled with lots of art. It has really gone downhill in the last few years. When I was a kid, there were two great markets next to the railway station, and now there is only a fruit market :(
I hate when markets close!

Jacket: Lady Bryant (gifted from Franny)
Shirt: Ebay purchase
Skirt: Evans

Lovely brooch that I got from Leicester, UK while I was there in 2010. 

I'm still wearing my walking boot. It's actually falling apart because I walk too much. I hope that I'll get it off next week when I visit the hospital.

You look great!
That is awesome that you got to see something you've loved from when you were a child. :)

Aww, I'm so glad that you got to see something so special to you! I've never seen Cats myself, but the few numbers from the soundtrack I do know are beautiful.

I've been lurking on your blog and finally decided to post.

Love the purple jacket! Very appropriate for the theatre.
