Stage adaptation of Numeroff’s popular series will delight

Posted on Wednesday, January 26, 2011

WYE MILLS – Omaha Theater Company’s original production of If You Give a Cat a Cupcake will be presented on Friday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Todd Performing Arts Center at Chesapeake College.

Based on the lighthearted book written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond, this vibrant new show is full of interactive fun and comic relief that will have everyone smiling.

Despite her older brother’s warning, seven-year-old Laura gives her new cat a cupcake. The cat is so excited and happy that she asks for sprinkles. When Laura gives her the sprinkles, the cat makes a huge mess. Cleaning up the mess will get her wet, so Laura gives her a bathing suit....which leads to crazy adventures at the beach, the gym, a mountain, a lake, and beyond!

"At various times in the play, the audience members get to talk to the characters, sing along with them, dance with them and make lots of fun noises," said playwright Brian Guehring. "The cast really looks forward to this aspect of the show because the kids in the audience are always so eager to participate."

The show is funny and energetic entertainment, but also teaches a lesson about consequences of actions and the need to rein in impulses. Tickets for the show are $8 and available through the Box Office at 410. 827. 5867. .
