Everybody wants to be a cat in Disney's stage adaptation of the animated classic motion picture.  Based on the beloved Disney film, Disney’s The Aristocats is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns. In Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her 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.  Very talented children age 7-14 years old from several communities in the Greater Hartford area will be performing in this Production, which lasts approximately 40 minutes long.  This show is for children and families alike and a wonderful way to spend time with the family!
