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 2022 theatre 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.

For kids who can’t get enough Scaredy Cat, we’ve developed a short prototype video game set in Scaredy’s world. Working in collaborating with Tasmanian game developers Secret Lab, we learned that storytelling for video games is not so different from storytelling on the stage. 

Keep an eye out for your opportunity to play the Scaredy Cat game in future.

This project was assisted through Arts Tasmania and Screen Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
