Take in world fairytales with Malika, Queen of Cats at the Auburn Ave. Sept. 29

Ave Kids Logo

AveKids kicks off its 2012-2013 season with the Tears of Joy Theatre production of Malika, Queen of Cats! Take in this artful rendition of the classic Palestinian fairytale at the Auburn Avenue Theater, Saturday, Sept. 29 at 2 p.m.

Malika, Queen of Cats is a tale that teaches children the wickedness of greed. As the story goes, some years ago in Palestine lived a kind and generous woman that rescued a kitten from a tree. The thankful kitten introduces the woman to a group of magical, talking cats lead by Malika, their queen. The grateful cats reward the woman, but conflict arises for her from there.

Tears of Joy Theatre’s mission is to produce, develop, and present puppet theatre that celebrates the diversity of world cultures and to teach children and enrich their lives by helping them experience, create and perform art with professional artists. Besides their extensive touring program, which includes Malika, Tears of Joy Theatre is also a resident company at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts where they present six productions each year.

And don’t forget Birthday Party Packages: Party at the Ave! An AveKids performance and party time after the show! A great option for your child’s next birthday.

Auburn AVE Kids showcases local, regional and national acts and touring presentations with an emphasis on audiences ages four through 12 and their parents. We invite you to share these magnificent moments on stage where extraordinary things come to life, making Auburn AVE Kids More Than You Imagined!
