THE CAT IN THE HAT by Dr. Seuss, adapted for the stage by Katie Mitchell. (A transfer from the National Theatre). Aimed at an audience of 3 to 6-year-olds. 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 is certainly fun to play with. And he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home…?
