Come 30 minutes early, this is a nice place to be. Have a snack at the theater or take a short walk in the neighborhood.

Description

The Berkeley Playhouse Conservatory will present a live-action version of the Disney favorite The Aristocats. This fully-produced musical will be the culmination of a thirteen-week training program led by professional directors and designers, including Executive Director Jerry R. Foust. Students in the program receive instruction in acting, singing and dancing, and play all lead and supporting roles. The cast consists of 26 students, grades 3-5, from all over the East Bay.

The production is based on the 1970 Disney film “The Aristocats,” with music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, and Al Rink and Floyd Huddleston. Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, the story finds Madame’s jealous butler Edgar cat-napping Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandoning them in the Parisian countryside. Luckily, Thomas O’Malley and his rag-tag bunch of Alley Cats come to their rescue! Songs include the Disney favorites “The Aristocats,” “Scales and Arpeggios” and “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat.”
