Mouse in House

The Big Meow
March 29/30, April 5
- 2 pm/Theatre on the Run, Arlington VA
The Big Meow is a story of hope, disappointment, courage and the need for belonging. These simple themes are part of every neighborhood, but in this wonderful tale told through the experiences of Little Cat, Baltimore based author Elizabeth Spires transforms a potential weakness into a unique strength. We are proud to partner with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides pet adoption in Virginia, Washington, DC and Maryland. Homeward Trailsfinds homes for dogs and cats rescued from high-kill animal shelters or whose owners could no longer care for them or were found as strays. Several ‘in need’ cats ready for loving homes will be on view. You can adopt, donate cash or bring donated kitty litter and/or canned wet kitty food to support Homeward Trails. Enjoy a performance of movement and theater with original music by Mark Sylvester and delightful choreography by Jane Franklin.
