Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat

  • Venue

    St James Theatre

For the perfect antidote to school holiday blues, take the kids to a live theatre adaption of one of the most beloved children’s books. Dr. Seuss’s ‘The Cat in the Hat’ was written in 1957, and it’s just as delightful, fresh, and mad-capped as it was 66 years ago.

The play was adapted for the stage in 2009 by the National Theatre of Britain. The original story only uses 200 words to describe how The Cat in The Hat interrupts a rainy afternoon with a visit to Sally and her brother’s cosy home. He teaches the bored siblings how to have fun with nothing but a little imagination. “It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how”.
