Local actors to present Puss in Mukluks

More than 30 people are busy preparing for Elora Community Theatre’s next offering Puss in Mukluks.
Director and playwright Peter Scott’s modern adaptation of the familiar traditional tale opens on stage at the Fergus Grand Theatre on Feb.. 8.
When Stu, the miller’s son, teams up with a cat who wears mukluks, strange things hap­pen. The cast includes a king and a princess, a strange cook, and a picky governess, and Goldenrod, a donkey who can count.
A traditional British Panto­mime, the production, with mu­sic and comedy and audience participation is for all ages.
Audi­ences are encouraged to boo the villain and cheer the hero.
There will be eight perfor-man­ces. Tickets are available by calling Ralph Basset Asso­ciates at 519-843-4852. Tickets are $17.50 adults, $14 seniors, $5 Eye Go and elementary students.
Two extra matinee perfor­mances have been added on Feb. 8 (sold out) and February 15 for schools. School groups and children pay $5 per ticket. As Feb. 15 happens to be a professional development day, parents or caregivers and home schoolers may want to bring the children to a live matinee performance.
Evening performances are at 8pm on Feb. 8, 9, and 14, 15. There is a Sunday matinee at 2pm on Feb. 10, and the show closes with a matinee at 2 pm on Feb. 16. More information is available at www.elora­communitytheatre.com.
