New Zealand’s First Post-Covid Touring Production ‘FOR THE KIDS’ THESE JULY SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Few children’s books have stood the test of time quite like Dr Seuss’s 200 word masterpiece ‘The Cat in the Hat’. As the top selling children’s author of all time, the story is as popular now as it was in the 1950’s when Oxford University educated Theodor ‘Seuss’ Geissel wrote the book. Both children and adults alike are sure to be left in raptures by this zany and imaginative stage show that brings the story to life on a 14 city, 35 show nationwide tour of theatres.

The Cat in The Hat’s stage production tells the story consistent with the book of a brother and sister, bored at home on a rainy day…(without their Mother!!??) when they are visited by none other than ‘The Cat’ in his red and white striped Hat….(which they let in the door!!??). Their outspoken and outraged pet Fish (yip the fish talks…and is the babysitter!!) is astounded and concerned, but this cat will not be deterred. He will teach us all to make our own fun with nothing but a little imagination. “It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.” Along with his friends, Thing One and Thing Two (Hey we all have those types of friend’s) they turn the house upside down leaving mess everywhere but have no fear because The Cat brings in his red ‘Picker-Up Machine’ and all is back to normal before Mum walks back in the door.

“Absolutely recommended this show 10/10 🙂 Our kids were mesmerized and it was wonderful seeing such an iconic story of my childhood acted out in such a fun and silly way and getting to see the joy on my children’s faces that the story brought me. Great actors and production, very funny for both the adults and little ones”
