“Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It’s fun to have fun but you have to know how!”
Families of Guildford and surrounding areas are in for a theatrical treat as Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre will play host to the anarchic musical extravaganza The Cat in the Hat from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th March. Based on the much-loved book by Dr Seuss, this critically acclaimed musical adaptation features vibrant visuals, catchy songs and heaps of energy! Featuring feline frivolity and riotous rhymes, it is a brilliantly bizarre and superbly silly theatre experience, suitable for ages 4 years plus.
When the Cat in the Hat steps onto the mat, Sally and her brother are in for a roller coaster 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?
In this Curve and Rose Theatre Kingston co-production, Nana Amoo-Gottfried plays the show’s chaotic Cat, while actor and opera singer Charley Magalit plays the role of the fearful Fish. Joining the cast as the children, whose house the Cat visits, are Sam Angell as the Boy and Melissa Lowe as Sally.
Completing the company as the Cat’s energetic companions Thing 1 & Thing 2 are acrobats Celia Francis and Robert Penny. Directed by Curve’s Associate Director Suba Das, with Design by Isla Shaw and original songs from Composer Tasha Taylor Johnson (George’s Marvellous Medicine), this production has been made in association with the National Centre for Circus Arts.
Dr Seuss’s best-selling book has captivated the hearts of generations of readers for over fifty years. This new musical stage adaptation is bound to delight children and grown-ups alike with extravagant costumes, infectious humour and spectacular circus, bringing a whole new lease of life to this much-loved classic.
Guildford Library will be running an exciting hat-drawing competition from the 16th February to the 2nd March. The most fun and creative entry will win four free tickets to see the show on the 7th March.
