One of the most loved kids stories ever - Dr Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat - comes to Peterborough’s Broadway for a three-day run on Tuesday.

From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that the Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met.

With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home?

Based on the much-loved book by Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat is a lively and engaging first theatre experience for young children aged 3+.

The Cat in the Hat was first published in 1957 as Dr. Seuss’s second book for children. It marked the transition of Theodor Seuss Geisel from successful advertising executive and political cartoonist, to world-famous illustrator and children’s author.

The curious and intricate rhyming found in The Cat in the Hat is still adored decades later with over 250 million copies sold worldwide in more than 20 different languages.

This stage adaptation by Katie Mitchell first played at the National Theatre in December 2009, before transferring to the Young Vic in 2010.

This new production was first presented in a sold out run at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

It is directed by Lillie Collier, designed by David Shields and produced by Paul Taylor-Mills Ltd.

See The Cat In The Hat at the Broadway Theatre from December 15 to 17. Tickets from the box office at or 01733 822225.
