Welcome to CATS Playhouse

A Theater for All to Enjoy

CATS began in 1994 as a touring children's theater troupe performing original children's shows. In 1998 they found a home on historic 34th street in Lubbock where they became a nonprofit and flourished under the care of president and founder Tim McIntire. In 2011 CATS moved down the street on 34th to their current home. The theater continues to thrive by encouraging community participation by actors of all experience levels and ages.
