EDMOND — Fine Arts Institute of Edmond will present five performances of “Puss in Boots,” a story about the most clever cat in the kingdom, Nov. 15-18.
The play, under the direction of Susan Scott, is for all ages.
“Susan, a local actress, director and costume designer, has excellent experience working in children's theater,” said Mitzi Hancuff, Fine Arts Institute executive director. “She always brings the natural talent forward from the cast members.”
Cast members are in the second through seventh grades.
Tom, the miller's son, is left his father's cat as an inheritance, but he expected to get the family mill. Tom is played by Josh Jury.
The mill went to his bossy elder sister, Gabrielle, played by Zoe Spencer. The cat, played by Sam Kisthardt, promises Tom if he gets him a pair of boots, he will make his fortune.
The goal of the play is to help young people experience the arts through drama and to discover the world of expression.
“The annual children's play is always a fun event at the Fine Arts Institute,” Hancuff said. “Excitement is high during the last week of rehearsals.”
Performances are at 7 p.m. Nov. 15-16 and at 2 and 7 p.m. Nov. 17. The show is at 3 p.m. Nov. 18.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Fine Arts Institute, 27 E Edwards, or from cast members.
