Yikes the school holidays are coming! What to do with YOUR Thing One and Thing 2??!!
Here’s an idea..! Bring the whole family to ‘The Cat in the Hat’ for an experience they’ll never forget… The story has been around for over 50 years and kids still love it… just like you did!
Two bored kids (This was way before iPads). One rainy day (We’ve all had a few of those) And one crazy cat wearing a red-striped hat (Where was the background check for that
In 1957, Dr Seuss used only 200 words to write his classic tale. More than 50 years later, The Cat in the Hat is a much-loved children's phenomenon.
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 lively adaptation of a classic book coming to life before your very eyes.
Spoiler alert: Things run amuck, and quickly!
