IT’S A PLAY DATE WITH YOUR KIDS AND NOT JUST FOR THEM!
Feb 2 – 3
THE CAT CAME BACK
Mister Johnson has a two eared, long tailed, furry problem that just won’t go away! No matter what he does, the mysterious yellow cat on his doorstep is determined to stay. He tries to give her away, hide her in a bucket and even launch her into outer space, but that cat just keeps coming back. Join us for feline fun as the Mesner Puppet Theatre brings to life this hilarious folktale.
“We love the humor, the artistry and creativity, and the people! Its not just for kids – all ages enjoy Mesner Puppet Theatre!” Carrie E
