National Children's Theatre
Everyone’s favourite cat comes to life... National Children’s Theatre is excited to present one of the most beloved children’s books of all time: Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat, a high energy, hilarious production filled with fun, adventure and, of course, a lot of mischief. The characters will leap from page to stage from 2 December 2019 through to 22 December 2019. Join Sally and her brother as their rainy-day blues are turned upside-down by a playful stranger in a striped hat. From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears at their door, Sally and her brother are in for a rollercoaster ride of havoc and mayhem! It all seems under control until the Cat unleashes Thing 1 and Thing 2, who do their best to cause absolute mayhem, leaving the children to wonder what mother will say when she returns home! Will their house ever be the same? Can the kids clean up before mom comes home? And if they do clean up, should they tell mother what happened? The cat teaches us we can make our own fun with nothing but a little imagination. "It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how." Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the cat will fill the theatre with mischievous humour and madcap style. Directed by Coba-Maryn Wilsenach, Sets, Costumes, and Lighting are by veteran NCT loyal heavyweights Stan Knight, Sarah Roberts and Jane Gosnell respectively. The versatile talented cast, headed by Naledi Award Winner Jaques De Silva and includes two other professional actors (as well as eight children from NCT workshops), promises to enrapture audiences young and old with their outstanding performances. This is family entertainment at its very best - an occasion not to be missed!
