Chatham Playhouse Fantasty Theatre Holds Auditions for "Puss in Boots"

Chatham Community Players’ (CCP) Fantasy Theater, the Theater for Young Audiences branch of CCP, is pleased to announce auditions for “Puss In Boots” adapted and dramatized from Charles Perrault’s original story by Vera Morris.

This is a delightful re-telling of the classic tale that always charms audiences, young and old. Tom, the miller’s son, is left his father’s cat for an inheritance. He expected to get the family mill. Unfortunately, that went to his bossy elder sister, Gabrielle. The cat, however, is no one’s fool. He promises that if Tom gets him a pair of boots he will make his fortune. Once he has the footwear and becomes Puss In Boots, the cat sets out on an amazing adventure.
Lonnie Ruland will be directing.  Rehearsals will begin in mid/late November.  Performances will be January 11 and 12, 2014 at the Chatham Playhouse.
