Pete the Cat

Pete the Cat

PETE THE CAT is the star of the bestselling book series by Kimberly and James Dean… and now he’s the star of his very own musical from TheaterWorksUSA!  

When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn some manners—and boy, are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle—the most organized, uptight second grader ever. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Join Jimmy and Pete as they set off on an adventure in Pete’s VW Bus to find inspiration, magic sunglasses, and friendship! Recommended for ages 4-9.
