CHICAGO, Illinois (December 7, 2023) -- Otherworld Theatre Company, the premier sci-fi and fantasy live theatre production company in North America, today released images of the purrfect holiday show, SPACE CAT HOLIDAYS, the family-friendly follow-up to 2022’s smash hit KITTIES IN SPACE.

SPACE CAT HOLIDAYS is a heartwarming adventure story that celebrates young people’s ability to solve problems by working together and using their imaginations.

On the Planet of the Cats, on Kitmas Eve, two young kittens make the mistake of answering a riddle, and making a request, of what appears to be an ancient Egyptian artifact. The kittens only wanted to get their Kitmas gifts early, but they find they have accidentally made their mother disappear. It turns out that the artifact is an AI device belonging to the Time Police, an AI device that will only function when its riddles are correctly answered. Defying the Time Police, who want their device back, Spooky and Whiskers set out to rescue their mother from the Mouse King, answering riddles and occasionally singing along the way, with interactive help from the audience. In the end, they must rescue Sandy Claws himself from a Time Police Time-Out, so that he can continue delivering gifts every Kitmas to all the kittens on the Planet of the Cats.
