Pete the Cat

by TheatreWorksUSA

Grades K-5

Join us for a musical adventure based on the popular book series by Eric Litwin. Pete the Cat is sent by the cat-catcher to live with the Biddle family—and, boy, are they square! This blue cat gets the whole family groovin’ in no time, except for Jimmy. The last thing this anxious second grader needs is some new cat turning his life upside down. Eventually, Jimmy and Pete find they can actually work together to succeed and both learn something new!

“This was one the best performances we have been to. The kids
were engaged the entire time. I would love to see it again!”

LBC performance may vary.

Education Programs on sale August 7, 2019 starting at 9:00am.
