More Information

A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production performed by Theatreworks/USA When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners – and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth. As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus. Recommended for grades Pre K-3 (60 minutes) Curriculum Connections: Literature, Communication/Language Arts, Music

Located in Mark Twain Country the Clemens Center is the region's premier performing arts center with two spectacular performance spaces. Mandeville Hall is a flexible, "black box" venue suitable for intimate performances. The majestic Powers Theater is an architectural treasure that has been newly restored to its vaudevillian-era grandeur. Magnificent murals, gold-leaf details and reconstructed opera boxes now adorn the theater just as they did when it opened in 1925. The 1,618-seat Powers Theater has been called the most beautiful theater between New York City and Buffalo - it is truly awe-inspiring! The recent renovation included expanding the stage and upgrading technical equipment, making it possible for the Clemens Center to showcase the biggest and the best in live entertainment. From blockbuster Broadway shows and dazzling dance programs to rousing rock 'n' roll concerts and feel-good family entertainment, the Clemens Center excites and delights audiences of all ages! The Clemens Center is the perfect place to connect with family and friends to create memorable performance experiences that enrich, inspire and even amaze you. Our programming reflects the diverse interests of audiences around the region whose lives are enriched by music, dance, theater, comedy and more. From on-line ticketing to courteous customer service and easy parking, you'll enjoy a hassle-free performance experience. With the renovation and reopening of the Powers Theater, the Clemens Center is well-positioned as a highly valuable community asset rarely found in a city the size of Elmira, New York. Our mission extends beyond entertainment and into the community through school programs, subsidized facility rentals and other support programs that help thousands each year. Like the Arnot Art Museum and the National Soaring Museum, we are proud to contribute to the cultural richness of Chemung County, improving the quality of life for all who live in our area. The Clemens Center annually leases space to more than 55 tenants in our facility. These tenants include the following performing arts organizations: Elmira Little Theatre, The Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, Thursday Morning Musicales, Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre, Common Time and New Heights Dance Theater. As "resident companies," these organizations provide community members with opportunities to perform on a professional theater stage.
