In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens.

Now it’s up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O’Malley, and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day.

Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS features plenty of exuberant group numbers and a cast that can be expanded by adding additional alley cats to the chorus.

Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Testimonials

They were Potters in my life, molding me into the person I am today... I came to faith in Jesus Christ at CLA, grew in my relationship with Him daily, was challenged, stretched, corrected in love, and released into a world that needs Him desperately... so that I could in turn spread the same passion and love for Him that I learned there.
