pete_the_catSunday, April 30, 2017 – Theatreworks USA presents, “Pete the Cat”. Tickets can be picked up from the Children’s desk from April 3.

Join us for another spectacular live theater performance by Theatreworks USA.
Pete the Cat is a groovy blue cat. No matter where he goes, Pete the Cat always keeps his cool. But when Pete is caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners. Life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking – except Jimmy. Join Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet Earth, and Pete on an adventure of friendship at our library, all the way to Paris and back in a VW bus.
