With nearly a decade of experience programming extraordinary cultural events for children and with over an 80 year history of providing great family entertainment as Parrot Jungle it should come as no surprise that we celebrate the commencement of our 2019-2020 Season of the Arts launch with two amazing offerings designed entirely with your children’s laughter and enjoyment in mind.
Opening our season this year will be one of our beloved resident companies, Miami Children’s Theater, in a fun-filled performance of Disney’s Aristocats. Madame’s jealous butler, Edgar, kidnaps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. What’s a cat to do? Luckily, Thomas O’Malley and his rag-tag bunch of Alley Cats come to their rescue! This feline adventure is sure to get your audiences tapping their feet to its jazzy beat, which includes the Disney favorites, “The Aristocats,” “Scales And Arpeggios,” and “Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat.”
Performances are Friday October 4 and Saturday October 5 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday October 5 at 3:00 p.m. (our Sensory Friendly performance matinee). Tickets can be purchased at the gate. Adults $15, Seniors and Students $12 and our Sensory Friendly Show $10.
