Two bored kids. One rainy day. And one crazy Cat wearing a red-striped Hat.
Few children’s books have stood the test of time quite like Dr Seuss’s 200 word masterpiece The Cat in the Hat. As the top selling children’s author of all time, the story is as popular now as it was in the 1950’s when Oxford University-educated Theodor ‘Seuss’ Geissel wrote the book. Now both children and adults alike are sure to be left in raptures by this zany and imaginative stage show, that will bring the much-loved children’s phenomenon to life.
The Cat in The Hat interrupts a boring, rainy afternoon with his unexpected visit to Sally and her brother’s home. Their outspoken and outraged pet Fish is astounded, but this cat will not be deterred. He will teach us all to make our own fun with nothing but a little imagination. Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the Cat will fill the theatre with mischievous humour and madcap style.
Over two years in the planning and fresh from a sold out tour of New Zealand, The Cat in the Hat features a full scale set of the house and over 70 props that the cast use to bring to life every detail of the well-known book. Young and old alike will delight in this adaptation of a classic book come to life before our very eyes.
