Center for Puppetry Arts Extends Pete the Cat Per-formance Schedule

This world premiere for the puppet stage will now run for an additional week, April 4 – May 28!

 

Due to popular demand, the Center for Puppetry Arts is pleased to announce that it will extend the run of its world premiere puppet production of Pete the Cat with the addition of 12 more performances!

 

Based on The New York Times best-selling book series by Georgia authors James and Kimberly Dean, this original production has been more than two years in the making. Inspired by Pete’s many adventures, the production invites audiences to join a meeting of the “Pete the Cat Club” – a place where everyone loves to read “Pete the Cat.” The show features rod puppets, projected animations, original music and interactive elements such as singing along to “The Wheels on the Bus” and helping Pete solve a math problem.
