Sword fights! Silly jokes! Songs! That’s what we love at WHAT for Kids and this year’s show has more of all of that! There’s also a seven piece band playing brilliant music throughout the show!
This sequel to our 2009 production of Puss in Boots, begins with a rapid fire recap of that play, just in case you missed it, and then we’re off and running, as Puss, aka Ocelot (Mae Cutrona) is kidnapped by agents of that evil pair Cardinal Balmont and Princess Minette (Holly Hansen) and handed over to pirates! When Ocelot eats all the rats on the board the ship, the grateful pirates choose Ocelot to be their new captain, but his triumph is short-lived as a storm washes him overboard and lands him on the shores of New Iberia, where he’s rescued by a mysterious man named Don Jose (Ari Lew) and his little dog, Bruno.
Meanwhile, Ocelot’s best friends, Jean-Claude (Nathan Scalise) and Anne-Claire (Shauna Condon) follow him across the ocean to New Iberia, where they, too, find themselves in danger!Will the three friends be re-united? And will they ever get back to France and restore good King Louis (Dick Morrill) to his throne? Of course, my friends! But before that happens, they’ll have to deal with a crazy – and very funny – Viceroy and his even crazier – and even funnier – daughter (Holly Hansen), as well as a ghost and, finally, that evil pair themselves, Balmont and Minette.
It all takes place in our brand new tent, the Larry Phillips Performance Pavillion, right where the old tent used to be! It’s a little longer, a little wider and, best of all, the center poles are gone so there’s not a bad seat in the house.
