"If you have never seen Cats before or it is your "umpteenth time", this production will not disappoint. Packemin Productions is the best youth theatre in Sydney." - Stage Whispers 

"In fact, the entire senior cast and ensemble were a sheer and utter delight to watch. All of the major cat roles were cast splendidly and each performer embodied the character of their assigned cat with maturity, grace and accomplished talent far beyond their young years." - Theatre People 

"Our Grizabella, in tattered purple satin, a red gash for a mouth and streaked eyes, was given a striking, poignant performance by Harmony Lovegrove. Her signature song Memory was sung wistfully and brought the house down." - Sydney Arts Guide
