My Perfect Pet at Emelin Theatre
She’s been lobbying her parents for her perfect gift, a particular puppy she spotted in a shelter. Her parents, however, are unsure that Cailin is sufficiently responsible and mature enough to care for this pet.
Accompanied by a precocious younger sister, Amy, and best friend, Josh, Cailin goes to school and to class (where our audience joins Cailin in active participation). This joyous day is clouded by Cailin’s well founded fear that her birthday wish probably won’t come true.
Ultimately, Cailin’s maturity is sorely tested. Will she do the easy thing or the right thing? Will her parents notice and approve of her actions? Will she get her perfect pet?
My Perfect Pet is an original musical with Music and Lyrics by Jeff Eisenberg and Book by Bruce J. Robinson. It is directed by Rachel Black Spaulding.
