Back by popular demand, Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” is returning to the Center for Puppetry Arts’ Mainstage Theater in Midtown Thursday through July 20. With plenty of rhymes, tricks and wit, the classic tale will transport audiences from the page to the stage, as the performance brings the iconic illustrations from the book to life for all to enjoy.

Adapted by Katie Mitchell and directed by Jon Ludwig, “The Cat in the Hat” features tabletop and rod puppetry styles performed by skilled puppeteers Dolph Amick, Brian Harrison, Reay Kaplan, Seth Langer, Eliana Marianes and Tim Sweeney, with performance interns Shari Bohnsack, Jake Krakovsky and Abbey Sanders, and understudy Megan Jance. All of the puppets, props and costumes were created onsite by the center’s staff.

“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.

It is recommended for ages 4 and up. Show times are as follows: Tuesday through Friday at 10 a.m. and noon, Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. and Sunday at 1 and 3 p.m. The center will be closed July 4.

Tickets are $9.25 for members and $16.50 for nonmembers. They include museum admission and entrance to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop (or to-go kit), where children can make their own Fish Shadow Puppet to take home with them as a reminder of their Seuss-tastic adventure.
