Would you trust a talking cat? You never know, he might turn you from a pauper to a prince just like the hero of this story, brought to vivid life on an incredible sloping stage by Patrick Lynch from Cbeebies. With smoke and mirrors and hidden trapdoors he’ll show you how this sure-footed feline fools both the King and the Ogre to put his master at the top. With a host of puppets, a working windmill and an avalanche of fruit and nuts come and see this classic furry tail - it’s the cat’s whiskers!
A show by Marcello Chiarenza. Adapted and performed by Patrick Lynch. Music by Carlo 'Cialdo' Capelli.
