The Madhatters Theatre Company has been an institution on the Connecticut shoreline for over 20 years. And now they are back at the Ivoryton Playhouse with The Aristocats. Based on the popular movie, the show is filled with "wonderful characters, great songs and a story that everyone will love. Jazz and hijinks make this Disney cat tale meow!"
Madame's jealous butler, Edgar, cat-naps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. What's a cat to do? Luckily, Thomas O'Malley and his rag-tag bunch of Alley Cats come to their rescue! This feline adventure is sure to get your audiences tapping their feet to its hep, jazzy beat, which includes the Disney favorites "The Aristocats," "Scales and Arpeggios" and "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat."
This year, the cast of Disney’s Aristocats’ at the Ivoryton Playhouse made a decision to donate the proceeds of their concession stand to support Team Avery.
Four year old Old Saybrook resident Avery Rose Leopoldino suffers from CDKL5, a rare genetic mutation that mostly affects girls because it is located on the X chromosome. About 400 people around the world are diagnosed with this disease and Avery is the only one in Connecticut to have it. Because of these miniscule numbers, little is known in the medical community about CDKL5.
Avery attends Goodwin School but currently suffers with up to six seizures a day and cannot walk, talk or hold her head up. She is also visually impaired, cannot use her hands and suffers from gastrointestinal issues.
Avery’s parents Mark and Kristen donate all funds raised to CDKL5 organizations and want to raise public awareness of this rare disorder. Avery’s father Mark is the manager of Bill’s Seafood Restaurant in Westbrook.
Come out and support the Madhatters Theatre Company and Team Avery at Disney’s Aristocats at the Ivoryton Playhouse.
Performances are tonight May 18th at 7pm, Saturday May 19th at 2pm & 7pm and Sunday May 20th at 2pm. Tickets $15 Adults and $8 Children 12 and under. All concession proceeds to benefit Team Avery. We will also donate $1 for each admission if you let us know at time of purchase. For tickets please call (860) 395-1861
