When the firefighting team at Fire Station 7 discovers a frisky alley cat named Coco hiding in their truck, they waste no time in giving her the boot. But Coco’s biggest dream is to be a fire cat, and she begs Jasper, Briggs, and Olive to let her stay. They finally allow her one shot at the job, and Coco is delighted. But being a fire cat turns out to be much harder than she thought. Still, Coco never gives up, determined to learn everything about fire safety, help in emergencies, and pass her exam.
This hilarious new musical comedy for all ages seamlessly integrates the seven rules of fire safety in a rock n’ roll performance as educational as it is entertaining.
