Olympia Family Theater kicks off the 2017-18 Mainstage Season with Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. Young and old alike will delight in this faithful adaptation of this childhood classic.
The Cat in The Hat turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure with his unexpected visit to Sally and her brother’s cozy home. Their outspoken and outraged pet Fish is astounded and concerned, but this cat will not be deterred. “I know some good games we could play…” said the Cat in the Hat. With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he will teach us all to make our own fun with nothing but a little imagination. Along with acrobatic Thing One and Thing Two, the cat will fill our theater with mischievous humor and madcap style.
The book comes to life with five actors and one puppeteer playing Dr. Seuss’ beloved characters. This show is full of lots of physical comedy and runs under an hour. A perfect introduction to live theater!
