When the Big Bad Gator spies plucky duckling Petite Rouge heading down the bayou to Grand-mere's house, Petite and her quick-witted cat Tejean lead him on a wild duck chase through the New Orleans Mardi Gras, all the way to a surprise ending. A saucy Swamp Chorus sings backup in the Zydeco-driven score to this spicy new family musical from the writer/composer of Junie B. Jones and the Miss Nelson musicals.
