Overview/Synopsis
 
The Alley Cats introduce Berlioz, Marie, Toulouse and their mother Duchess - the richest cats in all of Paris. When the Aristocats' beloved owner Madame announces that she has left them all of her money, Edgar, the family butler, becomes very jealous. While the Aristocats practice singing Edgar warms some milk. After they fall asleep, Edgar takes the Aristocats out into the country and leaves them in a ditch.
 
As the Aristocats wake up, lost and alone, Napoleon and his pack of Country Dogs chase Edgar away. An Alley Cat named O'Malley discovers the Aristocats (Thomas O'Malley Cat), who are surprised to find him friendly. Despite the protests of the other Alley Cats, O'Malley agrees to help the Aristocats find their way home to Madame. Napoleon and the Dogs find the Cats and chase them. When Marie falls into a river, O'Malley dives in to save her, only to be saved himself by a pair of Geese, Abigail and Amelia (The Gabble Girls). The whole gang waddles back to the city.
 
In Paris, O'Malley and the Alley Cats show the Aristocats the benefits of their freewheeling life. Duchess invites O'Malley to come home with her, but he decides to stay in the alley. Surprised to find them home, Edgar traps the Aristocats and prepares to ship them to Timbuktu. Roquefort the Mouse runs off to get help from O'Malley. The Dogs and Geese join the Alley Cats to save the Aristocats and ship Edgar away. Madame celebrates the return of her precious Aristocats and agrees to take in all their friends as her treasured pets.

Thomas O'Malley, an alley cat, is the charming and charismatic lead alley cat. He lives as a free spirit with no attachments but secretly desires to be part of a family. This role requires a strong actor, singer, and mover. He should also be comfortable flirting with the actress playing Duchess. When auditioning, mix and match your O'Malley and Duchess hopefuls into different pairs and look for the best chemistry. The success of the show largely hinges on the energy of this leading cat so cast your strongest performer in this role.

Duchess is the elegant and nurturing mother of the Aristokittens. This leading role requires small group singing, but no solos, so cast your strongest actor and mover, rather than singer. Look for a mature actress who is able to convey a maternal figure. Try to audition Duchess hopefuls with O'Malleys and Aristokittens to see who works best together.

Edgar is the villainous butler of Madame. He's allergic to the pampered Aristocats and secretly hates tending to them. This leading part requires one of your strongest and most mature performers with excellent acting and singing skills. Cast an actor who can portray a
