Scaredy Kat Presents at Westport Country Playhouse is a story of the power of creativity, art, and friendship. Eleven-year-old Kathryn is paralyzed by social anxiety. Estranged from her classmates, she spends all her time in her basement with her two passions: Alfred Hitchcock and stop motion animation.
When her enthusiastic attempts to win a trip to Hitchcock’s old film set fall apart faster than her clay figures, Kathryn is sent a possible gift with the arrival of the new neighbor girl, Nadia. Forced to spend her afternoons at Kathryn’s house while her mom is working, Nadia’s keen interest in art could be the secret to Kathryn’s success. With her anxiety trying to block her at every turn, Kathryn must learn how to share her dream — and potentially make a friend along the way.
