The South Arkansas Arts Center brings to you Disney’s irresistible classic, “DISNEY’S THE ARISTOCATS KIDS”. Presented by the Youth Community Theater in their third production and sponsored by the El Dorado Kiwanis Club, the production will run April 20-21 with tickets $5 for all. Jazz and hijinks make this Disney cat tale meow!
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventures 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!
Director Hannah Davis said about the show, “This show is a fun, new take on the beloved Disney classic. And it has been a joy to direct. The cast and I can’t wait to invite you to be a cat!”
Sophia Meyer, music director, added, “The music in this show is pretty challenging- especially the background vocals, like the ‘doo-wops’. It pushes the kids out of their comfort zone and they’ve had to learn to listen to each other and to the music and work together. Just like the Aristocats and Alley Cats had to work together to get back home, everything works out better when we all work together.”
Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
