Pete the Cat

Presented by Nashville Children's Theatre at Nashville Children's Theatre, Nashville TN

Pete the Cat

Based on the Pete the Cat series of books by Kimberly and James Dean.

When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners—and boy does he get the whole family rocking.

The family except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized 2nd grader on planet earth. The last thing Jimmy needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer 2nd grade art—all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!

  • Music by Will Aronson
  • Book and Lyrics by Sarah Hammond

Prior to the Sunday performances, your family can participate in pre-show, related fun!
