Pete the Cat

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 amission to help Jimmy conquer 2nd grade art—all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!

NCT welcomes all kids and families to our performances, but we know that some families hesitate to bring their children to live theatre without knowing how they might react. Sensory Friendly Performances are designed to be a safe and accepting environment where children with disabilities and their typically developing peers are free to speak and move in reaction to the story being told onstage.
