Arlington, VA ‐ Jane Franklin Dance announces performances of The Big Meow on January 14 and January 28, 2017 @ 3 pm at Theatre on the Run, 3700 S. Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA 22206 Specially adapted for young audiences, Jane Franklin Dance offers a family‐friendly performance of The Big Meow. Little Cat is taunted by neighborhood felines because his meow is just too darn loud. The movement‐based theatre performance is adapted from the children's book by Baltimore author Elizabeth Spires and tells the story of an ever‐hopeful orange fluffball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats, but is ostracized for a "loud as a lion's roar" meow. The Big Meow is a story of hope, disappointment, courage and the need for belonging. These simple themes are part of every neighborhood, but in this wonderful tale told through the experiences of Little Cat, a potential weakness is a unique strength. Music is by several local composers including Mark Sylvester and Jonathan Matis, with a surf guitar medley arranged and recorded by John Kamen and Mark Merella
