Puss in Boots

Directed by Laura Barry

by Vera Morris

Who’s the cleverest cat in the kingdom?  Who else — PUSS IN BOOTS!  This is a delightful re-telling of the classic tale that always charms audiences, young and old.  Tom, the miller’s son, is left his father’s cat for an inheritance.  He expected to get the family mill.  Unfortunately, that went to his bossy elder sister, Gabrielle.  The cat, however, is no one’s fool.  He promises that if Tom gets him a pair of boots he will make his fortune.  Once he has the footwear and becomes Puss In Boots, the cat sets out on an amazing adventure.  It involves meeting the  King, the Queen and the lovely Princess Pam, who Puss thinks will make a nice wife for his master!  There is only one real obstacle to the cat’s brilliant scheming — The Great Ogre!  This scary creature lives in a magnificent castle high on a mountaintop.  He eats trees and keeps prisoners in the dungeon, where they are fed nothing but oyster crackers.  By the final curtain, all of the cat’s plans have come to pass, and we’ve met a hilarious cast of characters, including the Ogre’s giggling bride-to-be and her snobbish mother, the Ogre’s servants and his comical dog, who’d like a new owner.
