The Cat in the Hat 

Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It’s fun to have fun but you have to know how!

When the Cat in the Hat steps onto the mat, Sally and her brother are in for a rollercoaster ride of havoc and mayhem! The Cat can rescue them from a dull rainy day, but what mischief do they get up to along the way?

Based on the much-loved book by Dr Seuss that has captivated generations of readers, The Cat in the Hat features feline frivolity aplenty, with his acrobatic accomplices Thing 1 and Thing 2. With riotous rhymes which have delighted children for over fifty years, and infectious humour and spectacular circus for the grown-ups, the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat comes to Edinburgh.

Directed by Suba Das with Design by Isla Shaw (The Gruffalo) Music and accompanying songs’ Tasha Taylor Johnson. The Cat in the Hat will be a purrfect treat for all the family.


A gleefully eccentric and anarchic show
