About the production

When three little kittens discover they’re missing their mittens, they go on an adventure to find them before Mother Cat finds out. This interactive, immersive spy play takes little ones on a journey that involves meeting neighbors; building unexpected friendships; and like all good adventures, pie. With a little help from their friends, the kittens find their mittens and have them purr-fectly cleaned up just in the nick of time.
