Fifteen Numbers. The original production was cast with 6 actor/musicians, with no separate band or MD. The music has also been scored for two keyboards, so the show can also be performed by non-instrumentalists – ie. as a more conventional musical.

PUSS IN BOOTS was first performed at Winchester Theatre Royal on
9th December 2004, produced by the Hiss and Boo Company.

The sets and costumes for this production are available for hire from

“It’s good to have them back, oh yes it is! Another seasonal sell-out is guaranteed… What’s especially nice about this show is its reliance on good-humour and wholesome entertainment.”
(THE WEST HAMPSHIRE OBSERVER)

“A true masterpiece from start to finish… My two young sons spent the entire performance on the edge of their seats.”
(MEON VALLEY NEWS)
