Peg + Cat
PEG + CAT - LIVE!
Produced by The Bay Area Children's Theatre
Peg + Cat Live! is created by Billy Aronson and Jennifer Oxley, the co-creators of the Peg + Cat PBS Kids TV series.
Based on the Emmy-winning PBS Kids show PEG + CAT (produced by The Fred Rogers Company and 9 Story Entertainment), this totally awesome musical features wild comedy, countless favorite songs from the show, and Peg’s super coolest pal Ramone! When Peg’s Mom asks Peg and Cat to mail some really important letters they come face to face with a really big dog. Really Big Problem! To solve it, they’ll need math—bar graphs, size comparison, position words, fair sharing, and a whole lot of counting. They’ll also need to count on each other, and the audience too, for their problem to be solved.
Research that shows Peg + Cat teaches kids math but also improves family attitudes toward math.
- PEG + CAT just received two Daytime Emmy nominations: Outstanding Preschool Children’s Animated Series and Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program.
- Purdue University Convocations in partnership with the Math Department will be conducting a National Research Study that will assess the impact of live performance on the math skills of some our youngest patrons.
