"Hakata NIngyou" with "Cats face"

Last Saturday, I watched a musical called "Cats" at "Hakata Canal City" in Fukuoka city with my wife and daughter. I was impressed by actor's good dance but I could not understand its story completely. (Some say it has no story.)

After the program, I found these dolls at the hall. They are "Hakata Ningyo" that is a traditional doll in the are and they have "Cats" makeup, as you see.

I've never seen "Cats," but I'm familiar with the soundtrack and I'm quite fond of it too.

Judging by the soundtrack, I suppose the story is just the decision of which cat will ascend to the "heaviside layer" (a weird way of saying "heaven" that I kind of like because you can write it very literally as 天側層).

I won't reveal any spoilers (ネタバレ), though. :-)

Thank you for a comment. I made a little bit progress in my understanding on "Cats" after I read some information on "Cats" on the Internet.
