Event Navigation

Through a special Theatre Cedar Rapids and TheatreWorksUSA partnership, audiences can now view Pete the Cat — the fun new musical for kids of all ages!

When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners… and boy, does he get the whole family rocking! Except, that is, for for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized 2nd grader on planet earth. The last thing Jimmy needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer 2nd grade art — all the way to Paris and back in a V.W. Bus!

Ticket access for Pete the Cat is the suggested price of $25* and includes an access link and private login credentials, which will be delivered in your confirmation email. Now through Jan. 20, just use your computer, tablet, smartphone, or smart tv to watch the show — any time you wish!
