THIS YEAR’S PPAC SHOW WILL BE: Disney’s The Aristocats Kids

Based on the beloved Disney animated film featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s The Aristocats Kids is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun. When the Madame's jealous butler Edgar catnaps Duchess and her Aristokittens then abandons them in the Parisian countryside, what's a cat to do? Luckily, Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats, comes to save the day. Featuring an ensemble cast of cats, dogs, and mice, this year’s show is guaranteed to be a purrrring good time!!!

Information and registration forms will be in students folders distributed at Back to School Night.
