This is the story of Elliot, forced out into the cold world by his greedy brothers. He has no money, no job, no place to stay; nothing in the world except for the clothes on his back, his father's old boots, and one very special cat.

People of all ages will enjoy this musical fairy tale by the writers of Snowdrops for Katya, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and countless others. The show is in one act, with no intermission, created especially for young (and young-at-heart) audiences.

We are pleased to feature our Performance Plus class (Snowdrops for Katya) in their second show of the theatre school year at The Wellington Street Theatre.

The Story-This cat is no ordinary cat

There were once 3 brothers whose father had died. One brother got the house. The other brother got the donkey and the 3rd brother; Elliot got the cat. The older two brothers throw Elliot and the cat out of the house. They throw in an old pair of their father's boots. Their father had often said there was a treasure in the house. So the older brothers proceed to dig up the house looking for the treasure.

It turns out that this cat is no ordinary cat. It can talk and walk. Puss asks Elliot to help him on with his boots. Elliot is amazed. Puss asks for an old curtain from the house which Elliot manages to obtain, and he wraps it around his shoulders like a cloak, and Puss steals the hat from one of the older brothers and he looks quite the magnificent sight.

The Marquis of Carabasse

Puss then goes off into the King's forest and traps a pheasant. He takes it the palace and to the amazed king and his daughter; the princess he offers the pheasant as a gift from his master. When the king asks who his master is, Puss asks if he knows the land where no one goes, and the king says 'Carabasse?' Puss says yes. His master is the Marquis of Carabasse. The princess then says that he is that mean horrible giant, that doesn't brush his teeth, he sharpens them, Taken aback Puss recovers quickly and says that the giant no longer lives there. He has been evicted.


Impressed that someone could actually have the power to evict the giant, the king and princess want to visit the Marquis. Puss agrees somewhat reluctantly since they don't actually live in the castle and if there is a big, mean, horrible giant then they would have to do something about it.

Puss takes Elliot out to a pond that lies on the road to the Giant's castle. He gets Elliot to take his clothes off and pretend he is drowning. When the king and the princess arrive in their carriage, Puss starts wailing as a cat can do. The king asks Puss what has happened, and Puss says that thieves made off with his master's clothes. The king secures rich garments for Elliot, and the king invites Elliot to ride with them. Puss hurries ahead to somehow find a way to get rid of the giant.

Puss encounters a field worker; a reaper, Puss asks him who the land belongs to. The reaper says it belongs to the horrible mean giant who lives down the lane. The reaper also tells Puss that besides being big and mean and horrible, the giant possesses magic powers. Not only is he big, he is magic. This would take a lot more work than Puss had originally thought. Puss tells him that when the king's carrriage arrives he must say that the land belongs to the Marquis of Carabasse or face some awful fate at the hands of his master. Puss asks the reaper why he seems to be the only reaper and the reaper replies that the giant gets hungry. He tells Puss that there used to be a lot more reapers.

Puss then encounters a mower, and Puss persuades him to tell the king that the land belongs to The Marquis of Carabasse.(Elliot)

When the royal carriage approaches the solitary reaper, the king askes who these fine lands belong to. They are all pleasantly surprised to find that The Marquis of Carabasse owns the land. The princess tells Elliot he must be a wonderful man to own so much land. Elliot doesn't know what to say.



The carriage then stops when they see the solitary mower and when the king asks who owns these fine fields, the mower says that these lands belong to The Marquis of Carabasse.

Meanwhile Puss has arrived at the huge castle. He looks for the giant who decides Puss would go well in a stew. Puss is terrified but he won't let that stop him. He tells the giant that before he gets eaten he has one request. The giant agrees and Puss says that he had heard that the giant has magic powers. Puss then laughs.

The giant is insulted because he does have magic powers. Puss says that is hard to believe because magicians are smart and clever and giants are big and stupid. Enraged the giant says he can turn himself into anything Puss suggests. Puss suggests a lion. The giant immediately transforms into a lion and they get into a sword fight. When the lion wins and is about to dispatch Puss with his sword blade Puss mocks the giant again saying that was too easy a trick because Lions are big. Puss says that it would be impossible for the giant to turn himself into something small.

The Giant again says he could turn into anything Puss suggests. Puss suggests a mouse and the giant does it. Of course Puss eats the mouse and the castle is his. Just in time as the king, the princess and Elliot arrive. Puss welcomes them to the castle of The Marquis of Carabasse. The king grants the princess and Elliot's request to be married and they live quite happily ever after.

Meanwhile the two older brothers have dug a very deep hole looking for a treasure that wasn't there for the treasure was Puss in Boots all along.


Puss in Boots special qualities

Puss in Boots has special qualities; he is a resourceful cat, more of the trickster than a kind or compassionate animal. There are many such celebrations of wit and mischieviousness from Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, to Aladdin, to Scapin. The trickster is a stock character of stories everywhere. The cat succeeds because it is a very clever cat. What happens to the trickster in the various collection of world stories might vary, but in the case of our amazing household cat it leads to a better style of living. Though one might ask, if Puss could alter Elliot's fortune so remarkably, then why did he not do the same for Elliot's father.
