Cain, Candice The Lovesick Cat Performing Arts- Theater
A cat is in love with her owner and wishes to become a girl so she can marry him. A fairy hears her and grants her wish. She is turned into a girl and the man falls in love with her, and learns that she can change her appearance, but never change her nature. This fun play, based on one of Aesop's fables, will teach elementary-aged students that changing your appearance doesn't change what you are inside. Facepainting afterwards!

Their performance enlivens the tale of a damsel in distress, cunning villain, stalwart companion, and hero of reason and action. Audience members unfamiliar with the plot will be engrossed by the story while admirers of Sherlock stories will be enthralled by the telling of one Holmes’ most rousing adventures. Rachel and Rebecca provide an introduction to the story, and they entertain questions and comments afterwards. Created for the 2015 NYS Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story and year-round.
