Paul Gallico – Péter Horváth

Jennie, or I Was a Cat in London

Peter is a lonely boy. He wants a pet cat dearly, but he is not allowed to keep one at home. Jenny is a street feline. She hates humans. Peter and Jennie meet amidst magical circumstances. Their true friendship helps them to understand each other and themselves better. The adaptation of Paul Gallico’s best selling novel, Jennie invites the audience to witness the unfolding of throat tightening emotions, gripping adventures, and a truly fabulous story retold through a lovely musical for children.
