In Disney’s The Aristocats Kids, Madame's jealous butler cat-naps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them; but, the Alley cats come to the rescue! This feline tale is a fast-paced adventure with memorable characters and jazzy songs.


Once Upon A Parable captures the truth and humor of the parables with their double meanings and surprise endings.  Parable has lots of opportunity for individual lines and solos, and combines great songs with witty scenes to share God’s truth!
