Katie Mitchell’s acclaimed stage adaptation of Dr Seuss’s ‘The Cat in the Hat’ will grace the shores of Bahrain this month after a successful stint in the UK.

Young or old, we’ve all heard of the adventures of Dr Seuss’s mischievous feline character, Cat in the Hat. So, round up the kids and get ready for a fun-filled day with the family as one of UK’s renowned stage productions comes to the island this month.

This new production of The Cat in the Hat was first presented to sold out crowds at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the 2015 tour will visit 30 venues across the UK, as well as play a short run in Bahrain from January 20 to January 22 at the Cultural Hall.

The shows on January 20 and 21 will be held at 8.45am and 10.30am and on January 22 at 8.45am, 10.30am and 4.30pm.

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 two years and over.

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?

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 story is still adored decades later, with more than 250 million copies sold worldwide in more than 20 different languages.

The show was originally produced in 2009 by the National Theatre of Great Britain, adapted and originally directed by Katie Mitchell. This new production is directed by Lillie Collier, designed by David Shields and produced by Paul Taylor-Mills Ltd. It is presented through special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Plays Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International.

Tickets are available at Havajava in Manazel and Alosra supermarkets, priced at BD15. A special family package of four tickets is priced at BD50 and special school packages are also available for a limited time only.
