Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It’s fun to have fun but you have to know how!

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, 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, infectious humour and spectacular circus for the grown-ups, this wonderfully anarchic show is the purrfect treat for all the family.

Age guideline: 3+

Family tickets £70: select 4 top-price tickets (purple) to get the family ticket. Max 2 adults.

Celebrate your child’s birthday in style with a Cat-tastic Playhouse Party!

 

A curve & rose theatre kingston production. In association with the national centre for circus arts.
