Little Cat is an ever-hopeful fluff ball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats. The Big Meow is a story of a Little Cat’s hope, disappointment, courage and need for belonging. These simple themes are part of every neighborhood, but in this wonderful tale told through the experiences of Little Cat, a potential weakness is a unique strength. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music and an interactive participatory introduction for young children. The Big Meow is at Theatre on the Run, 3700 South Four Mile Run Dr., Arlington VA, on Jan. 25, Feb. 1 and 8 at 4 p.m. The show is introduced with performances by local youth groups. Tickets are $15 for adults; $10 for children under 10; $45 for a family of four. janefranklindance.com.
