Things to Know Before the Show


This story is a great way to start conversations about...

our dreams and goals for the future. In Puss and Boots we open seeing Henry who seemingly has nothing. Although, this is not fully true. Henry has a dream for his life, to have a safe comfortable home and someone to share it with. When we are at the beginning, acquiring this feels impossible, but once Henry is paired with a crafty cat, suddenly his dreams fall into place. Though we are not all going to become the person of our dreams with help from a cat in some boots, it is important to let your dreams flourish even when it seems like a faraway destination. In addition, while Puss gets the ball rolling for Henry to get everything he ever wanted, it is up to Henry to become a worthy steward. He must be both honest and open with the Princess and prove his intentions, while helping the people that are now under his responsibility to prosper. It is never a weakness to ask for help, but we also must be ready to put in a little elbow grease on our end to complete the goals we have. We at LCT invite you to dream big and work hard!

We love this story because...

 it reminds us of the joy and wonder that comes from friendship. Henry and Puss are an unlikely pair. Henry is simple and honest man and Puss is as clever and calculating as they come. Despite this, they both find companionship within the friendship they create. Not only does Henry see his dreams come true, but he also gains lifelong memories and joy from experiencing a journey with Puss. Most of the sweet, fun, and special times in life happen with friends new and old and we cannot get enough of that feeling.

Throughout the story Puss has to go through obstacles to help Henry make all his dreams become reality. All the scenes are written and portrayed with students in kindergarten through second grade in mind.

Puss is on a journey to help Henry. While on this journey she must take on a terrible Ogre. While the main “weapon” Puss uses is her sharp wit and clever mind, the two characters do have a fighting sequence after Puss challenges him.

This production includes a sung melody throughout. The audience is encouraged to interact with the music and other aspects of the performance.
