Audiences of all ages can chase away the rainy day blues this spring with the Center for Puppetry Arts’ production of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat. Sally, Nick and their pet fish will take audiences on an unexpected adventure with the famous cat in the tall red and white striped hat and his mischievous companions – Thing 1 and Thing 2.
This show features rod puppetry and is presented in the Mainstage Theater, featuring puppets created in-house by the Center’s team of puppet builders. Originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain, the play was adapted and originally directed by Katie Mitchell. The Center’s production is directed by Jon Ludwig.
Recommended for ages four and up, Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is playing March 20 – May 13, with reduced-price previews on March 20 and 21 at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
The Center for Puppetry Arts will continue its dedication to programming for patrons with ASD on Sunday, April 8 with sensory-friendly modifications to the performance as well as in the Museum and in the Create-A-Puppet Workshops™. The Center will also provide a quiet room, social stories, noise-reducing headphones and fidget toys for guests who need those resources. For details, visit puppet.org/asd.
