Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theater presents "Puss and Boots" (10:30 a.m., Tampa Theatre, 711 N Franklin St., $7.50, under 2 free). Warning, bad puns ahead. In this musical adaptation of the Master Cat, Puss and Boots plots to change young Nat the Miller's son from a paw-per to an aristo-cat. The magical talking cat (which may not seem so magical to you Siamese owners) learns honesty is the best policy and good deeds are rewarded. He helps Nat rescue the kidnapped Princess Penny Candy from a wicked ogre, and you have a pur-fectly happy ending. The Dover-based puppet theater will use its trademark nine-foot-tall puppets for the production. The show lasts an hour and is recommended up to age 10. Also Saturday. Call (813) 659-0659.
