Classic character Garfield is to appear in a range of live experiences, after Paws Inc struck a deal with RWS and Associates Entertainment.

Broadway-based RWS has picked up the rights to produce stage shows and entertainment for theme parks, cruise ships, water parks, zoos and museums.

Milestone Events will continue to manage Garfield character costume meet and greets, and short engagement opportunities. RWS shows will have a run of 30 days or more.

"Not only is Garfield a first rate cartoon property, but he is an iconic character that is known and loved by people of all ages," said Ryan Stana, executive producer at RWS and Associates. "I'm thrilled to be adding Garfield to our portfolio."
