Everybody wants to be a cat in Disney's stage adaptation of the animated classic motion picture! Students in grades 2-8 from El Dorado, Parkers Chapel, Norphlet, and Camden come together to create this year's SAAC Youth Theatre production. Sophia Meyer, music director for the show, says, "The jazzy songs have the young performers singing in styles they don't hear on the radio, sticking true to the music from the original 1970s ‘Aristocats' Disney film."
In "Disney's The Aristocats KIDS", a pampered, pedigreed cat and her three adorable kittens are cat-napped by a mean and greedy butler who hopes to gain the inheritance left to them by their millionaress owner. Things look hopeless until they are befriended by Thomas O'Malley, an easy-going alley cat, who shows them the way home and helps them get their inheritance back.
The stage adaptation features music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, Al Rinker and Floyd Huddleston. The original music was adapted and arranged by Brian Louiselle, who also provided additional music and lyrics. Book was adapted by Michael Bernard, who also provided additional lyrics.
