TheaterWorksUSA 's PETE THE CAT Comes to BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center
TheaterWorksUSA is partnering with BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center once again to bring their high-quality family entertainment to New York City. The partnership continues on February 22, 2020, with Pete the Cat at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center (199 Chambers St, New York, NY 10007). Tickets are $30 (General Admission) and can be purchased by visiting Tribecapac.org or by calling (212) 220-1460.
For Pete the Cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up-so the minute the groovy blue cat meets The Biddles, he gets the whole family rocking. That is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet Earth.
But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, Pete is the perfect pal to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!
Recommended for ages 4 and up.
