School Shows

Pete the Cat

by TheaterWorksUSA

Grades PK-3

Join us for a musical adventure based on the book series by Eric Litwin. The minute Pete the Cat meets the Biddles, he gets the whole family rocking, all except for Jimmy. For this organized second grader, the end of the school year has a lot of tests and the last thing he needs is some new cat in his life turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class it turns out Pete is the perfect pal to help. Together, they conquer second grade art and learn a little something new about inspiration and friendship.

“Super engaging, high
energy, fun, and creative.”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden with our Art Talks program!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.

Sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
