About the Season:

Three Cat Productions 2013/14 mainstage season kicks off in fall with Joint Attention, a drama about the struggles of a young couple with an autistic child, by Pat Curtis. For the holidays, Three Cat presents Tell Me When It Hurts, a farcical romantic comedy, by Lisa Scott. The season concludes in spring with a new musical revue, Hang Your Hat at Mr. K’s, about the stars who performed at one of Chicago’s most famous jazz clubs; book written by Jarrin Davis.

The 2014 Chicago New Work Festival will be held from Jan. 6 to Feb. 1, 2014.  Eight playwrights will be invited to participate based on their submissions. The Chicago New Work Festival is development-oriented. Each invited playwright will be paired with a director, and the playwright-director team will be assigned a week of the festival to workshop the play, with a staged reading at the end of the week.

Cabaret on the Lake coming in Spring 2014

SOLO Chicago coming in August of 2014

Three Cat Education is presenting the Tin Man of Oz this Fall.  In the Tin Man of Oz, we meet a boy, a lion cub, and a farmer who hopes to scare away some birds.  Our Three Cat Education actors will use music, sketch and puppetry to examine just what happened before The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!    Tin Man of Oz will include roles for non-singers and non-dancers as well as for those who want to sing and dance.   The show will be written specifically for and BY the students who audition.  We take great care to make sure we have a place for all. Each child’s individual talents are used to create a production uniquely theirs.
