Skippyjon Jones – Adapted from Judy Schachner’s award winning favorite books for children, this enchanting new musical features Skippyjon Jones, a Siamese kitten with a wild imagination, who looks like a Chihuahua dog and wants to be anything but a cat. Donning a mask, a cape and an accent, Skippyjon Jones transforms into Skippito Friskito, the greatest canine sword fighter in Old Mexico. When the local pack of Chihuahuas is terrorized by a gigantic bee named Alfredo el Bandito, we find out if Skippyjon will be a “fraidy-cat” or the “top dog.” 2pm. $12. Valentine Theatre,
410 Adams St., Toledo. 419-242-ARTS. www.valentinetheatre.com
