Everyone's favorite cat comes to mischievous life in this theatrical adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic.
The National Theatre's adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Cat In The Hat
is a lively, engaging "play with sound effects" for
performance by adults for young children. Not a word has been
touched or added to Dr. Seuss's classic, ensuring anyone who's read the
story will find
themselves transported into the world they've always imagined.
From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that
The Cat In The Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the
trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he is certainly fun to play
with. And he
turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum
find when she gets home...?
Featuring a cast of 8 and with virtually no set needed, The Cat In The Hatis
a perfect option for tours or for theatres
with education programs. A production handbook and guide video are
included in the materials making staging this show delightfully easy to bring to life.
