About Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat
The stage version of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is a very close adaptation of the classic picture book of the same name. It has all of the characters fans know and love and most of the narration and dialogue is taken directly from the book! In addition, there are several moments in the play that are expanded into moments of action and fun, creating a longer, more in-depth story.
This play is a great way to spark conversations about responsibility and knowing limits. The Cat and the Things really just want to play and have fun, but it takes them a while to realize that their actions can have negative consequences. Sally and her brother have to help them understand that some choices are not a good idea, like leaving the house a big mess or taking fun so far that it becomes unsafe. This story can be a good way to talk to your young people about taking ownership of their own boundaries and responsibilities, and listening to their conscience to help them know what is right.
We love this story because it brings the world of Dr. Seuss leaping off the page and right onto the stage! It’s a show that celebrates play and imagination while engaging students and enhancing the experience of learning. We also love that this story is a great way to promote literacy and is around the same time as Dr. Seuss’s Birthday (March 2nd) and Read Across America Week 2020! Like Dr. Seuss himself said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
