StageArtKids Garfield: The Musical With Cattitude

Proudly presented by StageArt, GARFIELD: The Musical With Cattitude will have its Australasian premiere during the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

Children all around the world have fallen in love with Garfield and his friends as they take kids on an extraordinary adventure searching for fun and happiness.

Garfield, a chubby and sarcastic tabby cat, fantasises about having the most amazing birthday in the history of birthdays. He deserves it for being the best cat ever! But, it seems that all his friends, Arlene, Odie, Jon and even his nemesis, Nermal, have forgotten. Feeling rejected, Garfield ventures out to find adventure, but quickly learns that 'home is where the heart... and the food is'.
