How can opposite personalities help one another?


  • With its Beach Boys musical vibe and ’60s feel, this show will have everyone in the family strumming and strutting with the grooviest, guitar-slinging cat in town.
  • Pete the Cat’s wild rock star style gets him into trouble and he’s sent to the Biddle family to learn some manners.
  • It doesn’t take long before Pete turns house arrest into a crusade to help Jimmy Biddle (the world’s most organized student) pass second grade. It takes them on the inspirational road trip of a lifetime!
  • Everyone will love Pete’s hilarious, jazzy antics in this toe-tapping musical.
