We hope you enjoyed our April Fool's joke yesterday about a new production of Cats starring real-life moggies.

Sadly that show is not to be, but there were certainly a lot of contenders for roles, judging by the photos that you sent us. We liked them so much (who doesn't love being sent pictures of cats?) that we thought we'd share them here for everyone to see.

Take a look through the gallery of talented felines, and let us know your favourites. You can also have a look at our Facebook gallery, where we encourage you to suggest catty captions.

Is your cat a star in the making? Tweet us your pics using #catsonstage or email them to catsonstage@whatsonstage.com
