Fairy tale. By Stephanie Routman.
Cast: 4m., 3w., plus percussionist. Cast size may be reduced with options for doubling. In this short tale within a collection of "cat tails," MC Cat tells the tale of her Mexican nephew, Gatito, who, with a rooster and lamb, manages to get into a heap of trouble on Abuela's farm. When Gatito is left to stir the pot of meat stew, the temptation to eat the meat is too great. He and his cohorts find themselves outfoxing a wolf, and luckily bringing home a spoil to replace what they greedily ate. Flexible staging, suitable for touring. Costume pieces and masks. Approximate running time: 12 minutes.
