More about Pete the Cat:
When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners – and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up. So the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth.
As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.

Since the grand opening of RiverCenter in 2002, education has been an integral component of our mission. RiverCenter is proud to have served students and educators in our region with a variety of experiences and resources that integrate the arts into curriculum. Each season we have typically presented six titles in our ArtsReach Matinee series that are often tied to great works of literature for young people. These theatrical events showcase innovative presentations of both literature and STEAM content. We believe that it is not sufficient to simply present high quality productions for school-age children, therefore each performance is accompanied by a standards-based study guide designed to make the pre and post-show experience more meaningful. Our matinees are presented at 9:30am and 11:30am and many of the titles have “sensory friendly” showings. These feature lower sound levels, brighter lighting, before-show tactile tours, a quiet room and trained volunteers.
While the Covid 19 crisis has forced us to pause live activities, we remain committed to providing them in the future, and eagerly anticipate the time when that can occur. If you would like to be notified when we resume operation, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
