Scaredy Cat

19 July - 25 November

Scaredy Cat


6 - 22 January 2022


Sydney Opera House


Terrapin Puppet Theatre

A feisty feline fantasia for all ages

Scaredy Cat comes from a long line of fierce hunters, hired for the biggest jobs, with the meanest rodents. When an urgent call comes in, it’s Scaredy’s turn to do the family proud. Only problem is, she’s terrified of mice.

Trapped in an old basement with three cunning critters, Scaredy is bullied and all alone. Or so she thinks. As the antique furniture in the basement comes creakily to life, a whole new world of eccentric characters is revealed, leading Scaredy on a journey she’ll never forget.

Terrapin’s new production is a funny, beautiful and fantastic story of friendship across generations. Cute doesn’t mean no courage, and old age doesn’t make you obsolete.
