Following a sell-out run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the National Theatre’s stage adaptation of Dr Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat will return to London in a brand new production this festive season. The show will run at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington between Monday 8th December 2014 and Sunday 4th January 2015.
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 turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home? Based on the much-loved book by Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat is a lively and engaging first theatre experience for young children aged 3+.
Dr Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat, based on the book by Dr. Seuss, was originally produced in 2009 by the National Theatre of Great Britain, and adapted and originally directed by Katie Mitchell. This new production is directed by Lillie Collier, designed by David Shields and produced by Paul Taylor-Mills Ltd. It is presented through special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Plays Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International (MTI).
