A TheaterWorksUSA Production
Book and Lyrics by Sarah Hammond Music by Will Aronson
Based on the Pete the Cat series of books by Kimberly and James Dean

Theatre For Children Pre-K Through 3 Grade.

For Pete the Cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up. So the minute the groovy blue cat meets The Biddles, he gets the whole family rocking. That is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet Earth. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect pal to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second-grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!

With book and lyrics by Sarah Hammond, PETE THE CAT began its U.S. tour with Theatreworks USA in fall of 2016 and will hit the OCT stage starting in January. During its run in New York at The Lucille Lortel Theater, The New York Times called it “…a high-energy, irrepressibly cheerful whirl.” The show’s catchy music is by award-winning composer, Will Aronson. “[The music] makes you laugh while being so groovy,” said Dwayne Harris, Little Theatre of Manchester’s Executive Director. “It’s a really smart score that makes you want to act silly.”

Pete the Cat books are regularly featured on The New York Times Children’s Picture Book bestseller list and are loved by young readers around the world. Thanks to Pete’s groovy personality and ability to always see the bright side of things, the Pete the Cat book series has sold millions of copies worldwide.

 

Supported in part by The SBM Charitable Foundation, Inc., PETE THE CAT tickets are available for purchase at www.cheneyhall.org or by calling the LTM box office at (860) 647-9824. Tickets for children and adults are $6.

Prepare to fall in love again with the music of Simon & Garfunkel. From their first startlingly authentic rendition of “Sound of Silence” to their playful version of “Cecilia,” Jeb Guthrie and Jock Guthrie will have every audience member smiling…and singing along.

Through songs, stories, trivia, and humor, Jeb and Jock pay homage to the music of Simon & Garfunkel and playfully engage the audience along the way. The show highlights the brothers’ deep spiritual connection to this music, and to the 60s, the period that made it all happen.

About The Guthrie Brothers

Jeb and Jock Guthrie, the GUTHRIE BROTHERS, knew the first time they played a Simon and Garfunkel song that they had a natural and almost spiritual connection to it. “Our voices blended effortlessly into that S & G signature sound, and the overwhelming audience reaction to our performance confirmed our feelings,” says Jock. “Since that first performance, we have worked to perfect our tribute to these two amazing artists.“

The brothers perform this tribute with startling authenticity in an “unplugged” acoustic style. The two have been singing together for as long as either one of them can remember-–a major reason for the perfect blend of their harmonies. Both Jock and Jeb play acoustic guitar and sing.

“The music that we play is truly an extension of who we are,” Jock says. “Our philosophy is to do songs that we feel directly connected to. We can trace these connections back to shared experiences and feelings from our childhood.”

“We think this is the reason we can be so faithful to the spirit and sound of whatever period or type of music we’re playing–including our own music. We play together as one,” Jeb says.

The Guthries’ original music received national attention with the release of their self-titled, debut album. The album garnered extensive airplay on both Americana and Country radio stations. About the album, Billboard Magazine said, “Many stations will find the well-written, heartfelt lyrics and wonderful harmonies a welcome addition to their airwaves.” The album was re-released last year and can be heard and purchased online at the iTunes Music Store and Rhapsody.
