CURIOSITY CAT a WORLD-PREMIERE play by renowned author CHRIS GRABENSTEIN April 9 – 24, 2010 Thursdays at 7 PM, Fridays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 3 PM & 7 PM & Sundays at 3 PM
You’ve read about it in playbills and heard about it at CTK for months now- and the world-premiere of Chris Grabenstein’s new play “Curiosity Cat” is just days away!
When Claire and Charlie’s mother becomes ill, the two children are uprooted to live with their Aunt Jenny, a neighborhood filled with all sorts of interesting animals. As adults always seem to forget, animals will only speak around very young children, much to the delight of young Claire and Charlie. They immediately meet Tubbs, Aunt Jenny’s over-sized cat as well as Fred, her loyal dog. They also meet Curiosity Cat, a stray from Aunt Jenny’s neighborhood. Uproarious adventures ensue when the pessimistic Claire throws Curiosity Cat out of Aunt Jenny’s house, and we follow Curiosity in his search for a home. Along the way, we meet hilarious characters such as the felines: 18-year old Coot, street-wise Slicker,dainty spoiled Penelope, as well as handful of other homeless kittens.
Finding a home isn’t as easy as Curiosity thought it would be, especially since he is being followed by newly-appointed “Cat Catcher” Samantha P. Skeevelberger, and her fierce guard-dog Sargeant Schultz. Will Curiosity escape the evil Skeevelberger who is determined to “put him to sleep”? Will Curiosity and his fellow strays find a home? Will Claire and Charlie ever adjust to their new surroundings? The play builds to a funny and touching climax that you’ll have to see to believe!
