Pete the Cat: Live!
January 29, 2017
"I’m rocking in my school shoes.
I’m reading in my school shoes.
I’m eating in my school shoes.
I’m playing in my school shoes.
I’m singing in my school shoes."
They may be simple lyrics, but sung to Pete the Cat's blusey tunes, the melody gets you tappin' your toes! Pete the Cat was introduced to our family on a whim. Spotting a book cover featuring a brilliantly blue cat with a flashy red guitar, I added it to our stack of library books. I had no idea that when we started reading Pete the Cat, we would also be groovin' along to the beat of the blues. The books are paired with infectious songs that are easily viewed online, adding another interactive layer to storytime!
Along with his friends, Grumpy Toad, Gus, Alligator, Goldie the goldfish and Emma the pig, we've joined Pete the Cat on his musical adventures about Rockin in our School Shoes, Saving Christmas, and even those ol' Bedtime Blues. The books and music are hugely popular among parents for their friendly, be-as-you-are message, and kids love the placid, go-with-the-flow attitude of Pete.
Now you have a chance chance to experience Pete the Cat in a LIVE Musical show
this January at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts.
When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners! 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 second grader on planet earth.
Together, Pete and Jimmy set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art. Join Pete and Jimmy on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.
Join us for a pre-show event from 1:30 – 3:00 pm at Above & Beyond Children's Museum, located just north of the Weill Center!
