Childsplay will have some hilarious hi-jinks happening on stage this Sunday with the opening of The Cat in the Hat on Sunday, January 26. At some point in your life, you’ve most likely read this time honored Dr. Seuss classic. Now you can watch it unfold on stage. And who better to do that than Childsplay, Tempe’s award-winning professional theatre for families?
Cat and the Hat is a tale about one rainy afternoon in the lives of Sally and her brother. Their mother steps out and the cat in a tall, red-and-white-striped hat steps in. The mischievous cat turns a normal afternoon into a topsy turvy time for Sally and her brother and some action-packed fun for the Childsplay audience.
Cat in the Hat will be on stage at the Tempe Center for the Arts from January 26-March 16. Performances are on Saturdays at 1 and 4 p.m. and on Sundays at 4 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://tempe.gov/index.aspx?page=2302.
