The Aristocats

Aristocats Image FINAL

A family of aristocratic cats in Paris lives a beautifully cultured life with their owner, retired opera singer Madame Adelaide Bonfamille. That is until Edgar the butler overhears that the cats will inherit Madame’s fortune before it is left to him. He kidnaps Duchess and her three kittens, Belioz, Toulouse, and Marie, and abandons them in the French countryside. With the help of alley cat Thomas O’Malley, they venture back to Madame. Eva Gabor and Phil Harris lend their voices to the musical animated classic that is adored by children and adults alike.

This is a free, unticketed event. Please arrive fifteen to thirty minutes before the listed start time to find a seat.
