Cat In The Hat Comes To Curve For Christmas
Everyone’s favourite rhyming cat is coming to Curve this Christmas in a brand new production of Dr. Seuss’ classic story of mischief and chaos, The Cat in the Hat.
Another Made at Curve production, directed by Curve’s Associate Director
Suba Das, The Cat in the Hat will run in the theatre’s 300-seat Studio from 8 Dec 2018 to 12 Jan 2019 alongside musical (or is that meowsical?) White Christmas in Curve’s other theatre space.
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?
“We are positively purring with pride to announce what is sure to be another superbly playful Made at Curve production for young folk, their families and school children this Christmas” said Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster.
“Christmas at Curve is always special and Dr Seuss’ wonderfully mischievous story of The Cat in the Hat has entertained children around the world for generations. We are thrilled our Associate Director Suba Das is charged with wrangling the anarchic cat, joined by a purrfect production team, featuring Tasha Taylor-Johnson’s whiskerful tunes
and tail-defying circus-inspired moves.”
Curve will also be creating a number of workshops for schoolchildren to
accompany the zany production, encouraging young people to creatively
explore the show through physical theatre, reading, writing and dramatic
Recommended for children aged 4+, The Cat in the Hat will feature original songs from Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Tasha Taylor-Johnson who also created songs for Curve’s recent production of George’s Marvellous Medicine.
