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 the craziest of ideas, he is certainly fun to play with. And he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. This performance will have children on the edge of their seats, anticipating the reaction of Mom upon her return to the chaos.

Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat is a lively, engaging "play with sound effects" that was originally adapted by The National Theatre. This production is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
