When the Cat in the Hat steps onto the mat, Sally and her brother are in for a rollercoaster ride of havoc and mayhem! The Cat can rescue them from a dull rainy day, but what mischief do they get up to along the way?
Based on the much-loved book by Dr. Seuss that has captivated generations of readers, The Cat in the Hat features feline frivolity aplenty, with his acrobatic accomplices Thing 1 and Thing 2. With riotous rhymes, which have delighted children for over fifty years, and infectious humour and spectacular circus for the grown-ups, the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat comes to Rose Theatre for the 2019 Easter break.
Directed by Curve’s Associate Director Suba Das (Pink Sari Revolution, Sukanya), with design by Isla Shaw (The Witches, The Gruffalo) and original songs from composer Tasha Taylor Johnson (George’s Marvellous Medicine), this Rose Theatre Kingston and Curve co-production of The Cat in the Hat will be a purrfect treat for all the family.

Dr Seuss's rascal reborn as a madcap circus star
Fizzes and sparkles with energy, it’s brimming with an innocence brought to life by Amoo-Gottfried’s delightfully cheeky cat
There is no doubt that kids will enjoy it and families will have a lot of fun together. Unfortunately, it lacks a little polish and doesn't quite live up to its huge potential
