Electra is a character from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Cats.  As one of the minor kitten characters, she is cut from smaller productions.


Electra is generally considered to be a quiet, reserved cat, despite the lack of evidence supporting any personality. Many fans consider her to be the most mature of the 'kittens' in each show.

In productions where Etcetera is cut out, she (or Rumpleteazer) will usually take her place. In those productions, her personality becomes much more like Etcetera's than her own, due to having to squeal during Rum Tum Tugger's song.


Electra is a minor character; she has lines in group songs such as "Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats", but doesn't play a significant role in the show or have any solos. She is most often seen playing with the other kittens, most often Etcetera, Jemima, Pouncival and Tumblebrutus.

Appearance Edit

Electra is a dark brown, red and black tortoiseshell or tabby cat, usually portrayed in the show as a kitten.
