Milli, Jack and the Dancing Cat

by Monkey Baa Theatre Company
on the book by Stephen Michael King
03 July - 27 July
11:00 AM, 1:00 PM,

Milli is clever. She can take objects that have been forgotten or thrown away and transform them into amazing things. But the people in her village just aren’t interested, until one-day two strangers come into her shop. Jack and the Dancing Cat have no money to pay for new boots but in exchange they offer to give Milli dancing lessons, and with that there is no stopping her! This delightful, heart warming show based on the book by the much loved Stephen Michael King is a tap dancing, toe tapping feel good show for 3-8 year olds.

School Season performances – 17 – 26 July at 10:30am & 12:30pm

In 2008 Milli, Jack and the Dancing Cat toured 42 venues nationally from May to September.

The show was remounted in September 2009 for the Arts Centre, Melbourne and played at The Seymour Centre for a fortnight of performances through the October school holidays. Watch this space for a potential revival!

    1/2R think that the show was funny and awsome. It was fantastic because in one part the house was new and beautifully decorated. Children will enjoy this play as it is happy because Milli learnt to dance and she couldn’t dance before. It’s also good that they became friends. by 1/2R at Fort St PS.
