Puss in Boots
Music & Lyrics by Kevin Miller and Clay Zambo
Based on the original tale written by Charles Perrault, SSR proudly presents this fast paced comic romp around the French countryside as we meet Puss. This feline is no ordinary cat! Using trickery and deceit, Puss gains power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for Puss' penniless master.

Love as always to Stephanie and Kathryn.
