"Old factory becomes new theater." - "That's us! We landed right on time here under the Big Stage. It's a miracle."
What we humans do not suspect: Animals live in a hidden world beneath us, secretly guiding our daily lives. Even in the theater, with its many mysterious spaces, there are countless opportunities to hide and intervene unnoticed in the action. Therefore, a small troupe of true experts has been living under the stage of the Junges Staatstheater for a long time, and from there they determine what happens on stage. The artistic director, an experienced cat, has been secretly foisting her favorite plays on the theater people for years and, together with two old theater hands, pulls out all the stops to make sure that the rehearsals go exactly as the theater animals imagine. But then things go haywire: the move to another theater building causes a great deal of excitement, and the new trainee, who is passionate about theater but knows nothing about anything, keeps putting the troupe in danger of being discovered. And to make matters worse, mysterious incidents are piling up, threatening the upcoming opening. Will the theater animals manage to turn things around - and still remain undetected by the humans? There couldn't be a more fitting play for the move to the Kulturmühle!
