2 F/3M: Actor/Singer/Dancers 18 and older. Character breakdowns below.

Pete: The cat who never loses his cool. A mellow, free agent, older brother type who is always super groovy. Rock tenor.

Jimmy: A brainy, super-organized kid whose world is turned upside-down by the arrival of the messy, groovy cat. Comic, naturally cheerful, but a little closed-minded and prone to panic. Tenor.

Olive: Jimmy’s sister. Energetic, weird, and delightful. Totally open-minded and allergic to cats. Also plays various other comic roles. Can belt like a rock star when necessary.

Mom: A Type A mom who learns to relax. Also plays multiple other comic roles, including an overdramatic art teacher and a hip blues-playing toad. Vocally versatile: includes and operatic aria, but also a grump toad’s blues.

Dad: A silly, nervous dad who secretly longs to rock out. Also plays multiple other comic roles, including a guitar-playing platypus, a mean teacher, and a groovy surfer. Vocally versatile. Strong falsetto a plus.
