Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat at Dallas Children’s Theater

DCT summons all Dr. Seuss fans to see Cat in the Hat playing through Oct 27th


Cat in the Hat - Dallas Children's TheaterWith the trickiest of tricks and the craziest of ideas, he is ready to play.  He turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure!  “We couldn’t be more excited to open our season with such a classic, hilarious show, especially for our 30th birthday,” says DCT’s Nancy Schaeffer, director of the play.  “It’s going to be an exhilarating roller-coaster ride of acrobatics and comedy, filled with all the classic rhyme, rhythm and repetition that Dr. Seuss fans know and love.”  Experience all the wacky, zany joy that has made this one of the most treasured books of all time.  It’s definitely a very special, must-see theatrical event!

The curtain rises to reveal the house of Boy, Sally and Mother.  The bird in the tree sneezes, the thunder roars, and the rain pours down.  Sally and the Boy are stuck inside, as the sun refuses to shine on a wet, cold day.  Sally and Boy must resign to sitting, sitting, and more sitting while Fish is swimming and splashing about in his bowl.  Then, a whistle is sounded and something goes “bump.”  The children and Fish are startled!  What could it be?  It’s the Cat in the Hat, the funniest and most mischievous cat they have ever met.  What “new tricks” and mayhem will he show them INSIDE the house?  Will Mother find out?  Better see for yourself what this play is about!
