A new musical with everyone's favorite tubby tabby

In this brand new musical adaptation of everyone’s favorite sarcastic tubby tabby, Garfield awakens to find his birthday – the most important day of the year – has fallen on a Monday. The horror! To make matters worse, all his friends – Jon, Odie, Arlene, and even his nemesis, Nermal – have completely forgotten it’s his big day. Only his beloved teddy bear, Pookie, understands his disappointment. Feeling rejected, Garfield leaves the comforts of home and strikes out to find adventure. Making it as far as the alley, Garfield soon realizes in the outside there’s no T.V., the food is garbage (literally), and animal control is always just around the corner.  In the end, Garfield learns little things like, you know, the value of friendship and also that “home is where the heart - and the food - is.”     



Length: 55 minutes



 "rambunctious… infectious… a rollicking good time” 
-The Kansas City Star 


"Garfield's universal appeal paired with new songs and dances creates a fun-filled summer show for the entire family."


"Charms as it entertains...Adding music and lyrics allows the grumpy feline to sing and tap dance his way into the audience’s heart."
