DR. SEUSS' THE CAT IN THE HAT Adds 10/12-13 Shows at Main Street Theater
Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat, based on the book by Dr. Seuss and adapted by Katie Mitchell, originally produced by The National Theatre of Great Britain, will be directed by Jef Johnson at the MAIN STREET THEATER - CHELSEA MARKET, 4617 Montrose Blvd., Houston, TX, with added performances Saturday, Oct. 12 at 7:00pm and Sunday, Oct. 13 at 4:00pm.
"The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day." So begins the wildly popular Dr. Seuss classic that generations of children have read growing up. But never fear, the Cat in the Hat appears, with Thing One and Thing Two (bringing mayhem and fun!), to take Sally, her brother and the fish on a madcap adventure!
Recommended for Pre-Kindergarten and up. No children under 3 allowed in the theater (including sleeping babies).
