The Walker Center presents Dr. Seuss’s “The Cat in the Hat” on Friday, February 2, 2018, at 7 p.m. The National Theatre’s adaptation of “The Cat in the Hat” is a lively and engaging performance by adults for young children. Not a word has been changed or added to Dr. Seuss’s classic, ensuring that anyone who’s read the story will find themselves transported into the world they’ve always imagined.

From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that the cat in the tall, bright hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat that they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and the craziest of ideas, he is certainly loads of fun. He turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure, but what will mum find when she gets home?

Featuring a cast of eight, everyone’s favorite cat comes to life in this theatrical adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic. Join us to learn what the mischievous cat wearing the tall hat gets into during his adventures and fun.

An inexpensive kid-friendly meal will be available for purchase from 5:30-6:30 p.m. prior to the show.
