Dr Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat dou­ble pass — per­form­ing na­tion­wide dur­ing Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber

Waikato News - - FRONT PAGE -

Here’s a woo hoo mo­ment of the high­est or­der and we have a dou­ble pass to one of the fol­low­ing shows for you to take in the magic!

Two bored kids. One rainy day. And one crazy cat wear­ing a red-striped hat.

In 1957, Theodor Seuss Geisel used this for­mula and only 200 words to write his sec­ond chil­dren’s book as Dr Seuss. More than 50 years later, The Cat in the Hat isa much-loved chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture clas­sic and now a zany, imag­i­na­tive play com­ing to Hamil­ton’s Claude­lands Arena for some school hol­i­day fun!

The play was adapted for the stage in 2009 by the Na­tional Theatre of Bri­tain.

The Cat in The Hat in­ter­rupts this rainy af­ter­noon with his un­ex­pected visit to Sally and her brother’s cosy home. Their out­spo­ken and ou­traged pet Fish is as­tounded and con­cerned, but this cat will not be de­terred.

He will teach us all to make our own fun with noth­ing but a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion. “It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.” Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the cat will fill the theatre with mis­chievous hu­mour and mad­cap style. Young and old alike will de­light in this faith­ful adap­ta­tion of a clas­sic book come to life be­fore our very eyes. Spoiler alert: Things run amuck, and quickly.

Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in The Hat — more than just the cat’s whiskers!
