Based on Mo Willems’ beloved CAT the CAT series, this play explores the often terrifying experience of making a new friend. Using the rhyming and simple language of the books, this theatrical experience will invite our young audience to identify Cat the Cat’s parade of animal friends, mimic their animal sounds, and even learn a new language! Written and Directed by Scott Warren.
When Cat the Cat meets a newcomer on the scene, the audience shares in the nerves and the joy of the experience, and ultimately makes a room full of new friends themselves. Back by popular demand following its world premiere last season, come play the play with Cat the Cat!
Free performances* will be featured as a part of the CreateATL Free Family Festival on January 8th. For more information, click here.
Inspired by Eric Carle’s beloved book of the same name, From Head to Toe invites the youngest audience members to think, observe, and move like their favorite animals. This interactive theatrical experience will allow the toddlers to help “create” the animals in the book, bring them to life, and mimic their movement in a playful retelling of the classic story. Featuring a scenic design that mirrors the wonder of Carle’s illustrations and interactive yoga-inspired animal movement, this play moves from “Can you do it?” to “I can do it!” to “We can do it!” From Head to Toe is presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle.
