To The Rescue Theater and Monroe County Civic Theater have combined their efforts to bring this charming tale to the Fringe.

Lawrence (Jason Lopez) is a tiger-striped tabby who is the protector of his territory, prowling regularly to keep out danger. Tabitha (Robin Lea Pyle) is a rambunctious kitten who doesn’t understand why her desire to climb the fence makes her a “Bad Kitty”.

Enter a Persian interloper, Pixel (Roy Sillings), who quotes feline-inspired Shakespearean variants expressing his desire to become part of their home.

Because the show is meant to be light and whimsical, it is an excellent choice for families and small children. Note as well that all moneys received from the performances here go to a local Indianapolis feline charity, Cats Haven.

Performances are in the District Theatre.
