PETE THE CAT AT THE ORLANDO REP
Dates: February 29th through April 5th
The Orlando Repertory Theatre (Orlando REP) is ready to rock into spring with a feline favorite starring in his own musical, Pete The Cat. The moment this groovy blue cat meets The Biddle Family, he gets the whole crew rocking – that is, except for Jimmy, the most organized second grader on planet Earth. When Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect pal to help. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, inspiration, and music all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!
Written by Sarah Hammond and Will Aronson, the musical is based on the wildly popular children’s book and television series Pete The Cat by James and Kimberly Dean. Public performances open February 29 and run through April 5 with shows at 2 pm & 5:30 pm on both Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling 407.896.7365 or visiting orlandorep.com. Pete The Cat is presented by Kiwanis Club of Orlando Foundation and supported by KPMG.
Children 2 years and under not needing separate seating are free.

DR. PHILLIPS CENTER PRESENTS “SPAMILTON”
Dates: February 27th through March 5th
Where: Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater
Created by Gerard Alessandrini, the comic mastermind behind the long-running hit Forbidden Broadway and performed by a versatile cast of seven, Spamilton: An American Parody is a side-splitting new musical parody. After tearing it up in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London, Spamilton: An American Parody will stage a singing, dancing, comedy revolution in Orlando at Dr. Phillips Center in the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, Tuesday, February 24 – Thursday, March 5, 2020.
Marilyn Stasio of Variety mused, “Hip-hop, Broadway showtunes, Viennese waltzes — is there anything this guy can’t write? No, not Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, but Gerard Alessandrini, whose ingenious parody Spamilton simultaneously salutes and sends up Miranda and his signature musical.” Ben Brantley of The New York Times said, “This smart, silly, and often convulsively funny thesis, performed by a motor-mouthed cast that is fluent in many tongues, is the work of that eminent specialist in Broadway anatomy, pathology, and gossip, Gerard Alessandrini.”
