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 Hat is 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.
