Disney’s “The Aristocats” Kids live at Ohmann Theatre

The Lyons Middle School show, “Disney’s “The Aristocats” Kids will go on the boards of the Ohmann Theatre November 30, December 1 & 2. Students in the Lyons Middle School show are in full swing with only two weeks of rehearsals left before bringing the show to the Ohmann Theatre stage.This feline adventure is sure to get the audiences tapping their feet to its hep, jazzy beat, which includes the Disney favorites “The Aristocats,” “Scales and Arpeggios” and Everybody Wants to Be a Cat.” Disney’s “The Aristocats” Kids is based on the 1970 Disney Film “The Aristocats” with music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, Al Rinker and Floyd Huddleston, and Terry Gilkyson. The story is the same, but adapted to the stage: Madame’s (Kaila Kise) jealous butler Edgar (George Dobbins) cat-naps Duchess (Brittany DeCola) and her Aristokittens (Meghan Galbraith, Kyle Alexanian, & Spencer Miller) and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. What’s a cat to do? Luckily, Thomas O’Malley (Garret Coons) and his rag tag bunch of Alley Cats (Claudia Henry, Alexis Smith, Jessica Norris, Alex Marr, Kendra Grady, Katy Furfaro, Lexi Albrecht, Samantha Sims, & Marissa Holloay) come to their rescue. All havoc ensues when Roquefort (Alex Calvo), the dogs (Bradley Wagner, Kyle Iddings, Noah Dobbins, Tyler McCann, Matt Killips, & Brendan Kise) and the geese (Jennifer Norris, Hollianna Hendler, Jessica Muckey and Anne Galbraith) try to take on Edgar to save the day. The directors, Larry Ann Evans and Jean Stoep say the show couldn’t be more fun, “Jean and I think this is just a cute, cute show. We’re all having a great time putting it on!” said Evans.Becky Pazzulo will be the pianist for Disney’s “The Aristocat’s” Kids and also for “’Twas The Night Before Christmas” a preshow musical number featuring the older middle school students. Disney’s “The Aristocats” Kids will play at the Ohmann Theatre, William Street, Lyons, NY, November 30 and December 1 at 7:30pm and December 2 at 2:00pm.
