The Rescuers is the story of an international organization of mice that receive a plea for help from a little orphan girl named Penny. Penny has been kidnapped by an evil woman, Madame Medusa, who intends to use her to retrieve a diamond from a pirate cave. The case is taken by the lovely Bianca and her shy assistant Bernard. The two mice go off to the bayou where they encounter two brutish alligators and Medusa’s henchmen, and enlist the help of local swamp folk to rescue Penny and the diamond.

Post-film activities will include face painting and arts and crafts. Lunch and snacks, including pizza and soda, will be sold following the film.
