Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS at the Schauer Center!
December 23, 2013 – Hartford, WI – The Disney classic 101 Dalmatians KIDS will be at the Schauer Arts & Activities Center on January 24 and 25, 2014. Produced by the Schauer Center’s Rising Stars Productions, the family-friendly tale of kidnappers, coats, and puppies is based on the story by Dodie Smith that was transformed into the popular animated film.
Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, KIDS follows artistically-inclined pet owners Robert and Anita, who live happily in London with Dalmatian parents Pongo and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies. Everything is quiet until the monstrous Cruella De Vil, Anita's former classmate, plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat. With a high-spirited score and lovable characters, the adventure continues as all the dogs of London daringly rescue the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen.
