Jane Franklin Dance will present The Big Meow at Theatre on the Run in Arlington, Virginia on April 14. It’s the story of “an ever-hopeful fluff ball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cat. 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, a potential weakness is a unique strength. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music, and an interactive participatory introduction for young children.”
