‘The Cat in the Hat’ comes to life on stage!

Cat in Hat 10 (1)The Arts Partnership presents a performance of Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat, the classic children’s tale that comes to life on stage, 7 p.m. Thursday, March 30 at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts (MCPA) in Findlay. This event is part of the “TAP Package” at MCPA presented by The Arts Partnership.

 Arguably the most famous children’s book of all time, Childsplay is one of only a handful of theatre companies in the United States to perform the adaptation, making this high-energy and hilarious 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, the fun’s never done.

The Cat in the Hat is part of the “TAP Package” at MCPA, a series of one-hour performances geared toward families at affordable prices. The final remaining show in the series includes Dancing Wheels on April 6. The Arts Partnership is also presenting two performances of The Cat in the Hat as part of its School Day Performance Series also on March 30.

 Reserved seating tickets are $8 for children and $10 for adults.  For more information or to purchase tickets, contact MCPA Box Office at 419-423-2787 or visit marathoncenterarts.org.  MCPA is located at 200 West Main Cross Street, Findlay.  Office hours are 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
