April 14, 2022

Based on the beloved Disney animated film, and featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s "Aristocats Kids is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns.

In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens.

Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it's up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats to save the day.

Playing Madame is Morgan Tye and Edgar is Aiden Dodd, the Aristocats are Zamora Collett, Josiah Dodd, Naomi Spindler and Jeilah FuAado, the alley cats are Jay Newhouse, Isabell Solum, Natalie Hanson, Zachary Homan, Ezra Croll, Leila Christensen, Ivona Dahlen, Emilie Bourassa, Juliette Burt, Raelyn Dahlen, Daniel Countryman, Eliza Hyer and Halory Stanley.

Dogs are played by Talya Galbraith, Zane Owens, Abby Johnson, Keira Festini, Violet Hyer, Zach Dodd and Larson Jacobson and the mice are Gabby Feri, Lydia Hartley, Chavvah Hjooley, Sabrina Hartley, Kaelan Rode and Joshua Dahlen.

Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.

Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees.

As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.

The cast of Radium Girls is Alyssa Gardner, Sierra Rode, Darla Hyer, MaKayla Hartley, Elizabeth Bourassa, Ryann Jacobson, Kieley Little, Sebastian Holman, Alanna Dodd, Morgan Tye, Hallie Galbraith, Sadie Newhouse, Charlotte Holman, Ellie Dahlen, Evelynn Mart, Eden Murphy, June Marshall, Bria Hyer, Jane Moellmer, Violet Hyer, Talya Galbraith, Zamora Collett, Eric Johnson, Alma Fischer, Linus Holman, Taylor Dodd, Muir Parsons, Samuel Genys, Aiden Jacobson, Jaden Hyer, Meggie Kahenek, Emily Lewis, Cheyanne Johnson and Anika Rose Smucker.

Both features are under the direction of Kelly Collett. Ticckets are $8 for adults and $5 for students, available at the door. All proceeds directly benefit Bonners Ferry High School Theater in order to bring more great shows to the community!
