PreviewYouth/Family March 23, 2017 Encore Staff

DETROIT—The Music Hall will present the live stage adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat, performed by Childsplay, the nationally-recognized professional theatre for young audiences, one show, Sunday, April 2nd at 4:00 pm.

Childsplay is one of only a handful of theater companies in the United States to perform the adaptation, making this show a “must-see” for families.

“You can boil everything down to fun… simple and clear. The Cat wants to have fun. And so do we!” says The Cat in the Hat director David Barker. “The show feels just as youthful and exhilarating as reading a Dr. Seuss book.”

From the moment his tall, red-and-white striped hat appears at their door, Sally and her brother know that the Cat in the Hat is the most mischievous cat they will ever meet.  Suddenly a rainy afternoon is transformed by the Cat and his antics. Can the kids clean up before mom comes home? With some tricks (and a fish) and Thing Two and Thing One, with The Cat in The Hat… maybe.

The show is recommended for ages 3 and up.

Tickets are $10 for children and $20 for adults. Family 4 Pack: two adult and two children- $50. Tickets are available at The Music Hall Box Office or Ticketmaster.com.
