This classic French tale has been transported to turn-of-the-century New Orleans, where Puss is the sassiest, brassiest cat this side of Bourbon Street. Fitted with a grand pair of red boots and a clever nature, Puss matches wits with an arrogant young Creole aristocrat, the social-climbing mayor of New Orleans, and Croque Mitaine, an evil voodoo bogeyman, all to bring title, wealth and love to his astonished master.
“The Children’s Theatre Company version of Puss in Boots may be the sassiest theatricalization of a fairy tale ever seen on stage. Also one of the happiest.” –Minneapolis Tribune
“Playwright Holland has a knack for the witty one-liner, the funny turn of logic and ironic twist.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
