Cat Town Cabaret, a concert benefiting the Cat Town Café and Adoption Center, is a feline-themed event that will include a cabaret concert featuring witty, tender and comical songs, as well as three original scenes written and acted by playwrights and actors from All Terrain Theater’s Women in Solodarity show, “Cat Ladies,” which premiered in Berkeley, CA, in April 2013.

Local mezzo soprano, Meghan Dibble, and tenor, Rod Lowe, a couple of LOL cat addicts, will present several cat songs written by classical and cabaret composers, including Rossini’s Cat Duet. Dibble and Lowe will be accompanied on piano by Dr. Bryan Baker, who also will present Aaron Copland’s charming piece “The Cat and the Mouse.”

Scenes from “Cat Ladies”, a showcase featuring female solo performances in honor of our quirky obsession with cats, will include “Cat Nanny 911,” written & performed by Theresa Donahoe, “The Metamorphosis,” written by Carol Lashof and performed by Heather Kellogg, and “Kitty’s Prescription,” written by Patricia Milton and performed by Martha Rynberg.

Bicycle Coffee, cookies from S+M Vegan and wine and beer will be available for purchase.

About Cat Town
Cat Town is an independent, non-profit organization that helps the cats least likely to be adopted from Oakland’s municipal shelter. Through its foster-based program, Cat Town allows shy and sensitive cats to blossom and find great permanent homes.

A partnership between Ann Dunn of Cat Town and Adam Myatt of Hoodcats, the Cat Town Café & Adoption Center, at 2869 Broadway, in Oakland, will hold its grand opening on October 25. The Cat Town Café will significantly expand Cat Town’s capacity to get cats and kittens out of shelter cages and into great homes.
