Bad Kitty, the mischief-making housecat from the New York Times bestselling series by Nick Bruel, stumbles upon surprise after surprise in "Bad Kitty on Stage," which will be produced by TYKEs for its first performances outside of California and Oregon. A new puppy and a newborn baby take over Bad Kitty's once calm household and she must adapt quickly to the wacky characters around her. Recommended for children ages four and up, the musical aims to teach lessons of acceptance and friendship with each of Bad Kitty's misadventures. Directed by Matt Mayne.
