Cuteness is guaranteed to abound at the Academy of Children’s Theatre production of two beloved Disney tales.
The Richland theater company is taking on 101 Dalmations and Aristocats.
Performances are at 7 p.m. May 5-6 and May 12-13 and 3 p.m. May 6-7 and May 13-14 at the theater, 213 Wellsian Way.
The “upbeat and engaging” show includes two separate one-act musicals, said Anne Spilman, ACT’s managing director.
It will feature nearly 70 children, making it ACT’s biggest production of the season.
ACT main stage shows typically feature young performers in fourth grade and older, but this show includes kids as young as second-graders.
“Our littles are enjoying the opportunity to be part of the show,” Spilman said.
The Benton-Franklin Humane Society will bring dogs available for adoption to the May 6 and 13 matinees.
And a special sensory friendly performance for kids on the autism spectrum is at 7 p.m. May 13. The house lights will be left on and the sound will be turned down.
Tickets for 101 Dalmations and Aristocats are $15 for general admission, $12 for students and seniors, and $9 for kids 12 and younger.
