Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” Takes the Stage at TCC

September 17, 2014

Everyone’s favorite cat in the red and white striped hat comes to life in the Tulsa Community College Theatre Department’s production of “The Cat in the Hat, ” based on the classic Dr. Seuss children’s book.

The theatrical production brings the mischievous humor of the Cat in the Hat as well as the iconic and acrobatic Thing One and Thing Two to the stage. “I know some good games we could play,” said the Cat in the Hat as he entertains Sally and her brother on a rainy day. The show, under the direction of TCC Theatre Director Mark Frank, uses the same rhyming storytelling as the book and brings the zaniness and madcap style off the pages of the book.

This is a family-friendly show and is perfect for kids of all ages.

Performances of Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” are 8 p.m., Sept. 26, 27 and October 2, 3, 4 and 2 p.m., Sept. 27, 28 and October 4, 5 at the TCC Southeast Campus VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education at 10300 E. 81 Street.

For tickets call (918) 595-7777. Tickets are general admission. Group discounts for parties of 10 or more are available.

Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” was originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain and is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials supplied by MTI.
