When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it's a simple open-and-shut case, even for a jury that's filled with oddballs like a dim-witted PR guy, a bickering couple, and a man obsessed with french fries. After all, every scrap of evidence indicts the accused. (I mean so clearly. The man is very, very guilty of stealing cats. Case closed.) And yet, Juror #8, a wannabe lawyer, believes that the "Cat Burglar" is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3, the only sane man in the room? A hilarious parody of 12 Angry Men.

The best-selling children’s play has been musically revitalized with the playful and eclectic tunes of Bill Francoeur! We love this upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite so much that we have two musicals based on the same script! (See also The Shoemaker and the Elves.) Filled with delightfully wacky characters - including elves Mortz, Schwartz, Hazel, Gracie, and Studebaker, this familiar tale is laced with clever dialogue to make audiences of all ages smile. And you know you can always count on Bill Francoeur to compose a score that will make you want to sing along as you put on your dancing shoes!

This spooky, exciting piece is perfect for any space, large or small.
