This fairy tale is a fast-paced and witty interpretation of a beloved classic, especially for children from ages 4 to 8. An inventive prologue introduces the young audience to some of the conventions of the stage in an amusing way. The troupe then performs the familiar tale of the lovable Simple, who befriends an extremely clever cat. The cat is so grateful for Simple's friendship, and especially for the beautiful pair of boots she receives, that she promises to find Simple a place to live. With the audience's creative assistance, Puss also manages to find Simple a well-matched princess and helps Simple to defeat the evil ogre.

- "I have always been quite fond of Moses Goldberg's works, and Puss in Boots lives up to and exceeds my expectations. Funny, simple and clever. I do not relish the day I run out of his works to draw from."
