Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theatre phenomenon, CATS opened at London's New London Theatre on May 11, 1981 and ran for a record-setting 21 years. CATS's London success was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran at the Wintergarden Theatre for just over 18 years. 

The Performing Arts School in Englewood is bringing CATS back to life this summer in a fully staged musical production on the bergenPAC stage.

The Great Fraud

Fort Lee Based Band- High energy, fully loaded, tube burning, soul awakening, vintage blues infused rock and roll! The GREAT FRAUD formed in 2012 out of the coils of a few bands in disintegration. Out of the debris Joe Marrero (vocals) and (lead guitar) teamed up with blues (harmonica) player Reese Karlan in a basement session. The GREAT FRAUD merges blues, psychedelic rock, and strands of roots music into a unique electrifying sound that will move your soul!
