Youth Vacation Program: K-4th
Everybody wants to be a cat in Disney's stage adaptation of the animated classic motion picture!
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it's up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats to save the day.
Rehearsals are everyday from 9AM-4PM and the family performance will be Friday, June 28 at 7PM, both at the Common Street Spiritual Center in downtown Natick, MA.
