PLOT:

Eleanore MacIntyre  has decided to move her family from the country to
the city.  She's a single mom who is doing her best to raise 16 year old
Kyle, a rock and roller, 13 year old Saylor, a wannabe singer, and 3
year old Serenity, a demon child.   As part of the move, Eleanore
decides they should adopt a cat, even though Kyle would much prefer a
pitbull.   They stop in a Cat Cafe and Serenity immediately starts
grabbing cats by the tails.  Employee Justin tries to intervene, but
alas he ends up angering Serenity and as a result, he is fired from his
job.  From there, the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, and we are led
on a wild ride as the MacIntyre's try to adjust to their new home in the
city.  Will Kyle ever be allowed to adopt a pitbull?  What becomes of
the cat that they finally adopt?  Will Saylor burn down their new
apartment as she tries to heat up Serenity's egg drop soup?  And will
Saylor ever get a chance to realize her dream of becoming a singer?

Answers await in the African Community Theatre, May 18-20.

ABOUT THE NEW WORLD CHILDREN”S THEATRE

The New World Children’s Theater began as The New World Puppet Theater
at the North Water Street Gallery in Kent, Ohio, in January of 1993.
Originally, it was comprised of home-school children. Throughout the
years , however, it has grown to include public-schooled children as
well. Eventually, the troupe outgrew the puppets and the ensemble became
The New World Children’s Theater, which has produced 31 plays since
1994. In addition to the emphasis on original play writing, the company
is dedicated to using recycled materials in the construction of its sets
and props. This fosters an understanding of a sustainable planet as well
as an understanding of how to work with limited resources. The only
requirement is a creative mind.

The New World Children’s Theatre is always looking for donations to
support students from low income families as well as our ongoing
activities. Donations are tax deductible and can be made to Standing
Rock Cultural Arts, 300 N. Water St., Suite H., Kent, Ohio 44240.

Thank you for supporting the kids.
