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, with his acrobatic accomplices Thing 1 and Thing 2, arrives at Northern Stage bringing feline frivolity aplenty!

Featuring the riotous rhymes which have delighted children for over fifty years, some infectious humour and spectacular circus for the grown-ups, the wonderfully anarchic The Cat in the Hat is a purrfect treat for all the family.

Directed by Curve’s Associate Director Suba Das (Pink Sari Revolution, Sukanya), with Design by Isla Shaw (The Witches, The Gruffalo) and music and accompanying songs from Tasha Taylor Johnson (George’s Marvellous Medicine). Music and accompanying songs’ by Tasha Taylor Johnson.
