With its Beach Boys musical vibe and ’60s feel, this show will have everyone in the family strumming and strutting.
The grooviest, guitar-slinging cat in town meets the Biddles and rocks their world. Pete, who normally lives in a VW bus, has been sent to the Biddle’s to learn some manners, much to the annoyance of Jimmy (the world’s most organized grade schooler). But it doesn’t take long before Pete turns house arrest into a crusade to help Jimmy pass second grade and take him on the inspirational road trip of a lifetime! The whole family will love Pete's hilarious, jazzy antics in this toe-tapping musical.
Length: Approx. 55 minutes
