'A rollicking, roguish, exuberant treat of a show'Herald
'Magic, comedy, glitter, goodies, baddies and a true-hearted hero triumphing over adversity... But this being a Stuart Paterson show, most of the cheesier trad-panto fixtures are dispensed with in favour of strong narrative momentum and pawky vernacular humour... The story follows the adventures of Rab, the youngest of a mill-owner's three orphaned sons, after their mother's will leaves the mill to his two shiftless, bullying brothers and him nothing but her love and the company of her cat. Setting off to seek his fortune he soon discovers - of course - that this is no ordinary cat, especially not once they have defeated the evil witch and Puss has purloined her magnificent, re-sequinned magic boots... Puss is of course Catherine in disguise and Rab, though he didn't realise it at the time, has loved Catherine all along'Metro
