Join us for a jazzy spectacular on stage this Winter!

Aristocats, Kids!

Grades 2–5

If you loved summer camp, consider joining us this Winter for Aristocats Kids! Based on the beloved Disney animated film, and featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns. Your child will be led by a teaching artist and director through rehearsals in dancing, singing, and acting. With props and costumes, singing and scene-work, your child’s experience will culminate in four performances of this knee-slappin’ show. No audition required!

The production is led by a professional team including a Director, Music Director, Stage Manager, and Designers who oversee the set, costumes, props, lights, and sound. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to further develop their performance skills and bond through their work as an ensemble.

The show rehearses at the Academy studios in Rockville and performs onstage in Glen Echo.

About the Show

In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it’s up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O’Malley, and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day.
