Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat”
While their mother is away, Sally and her brother Sam are housebound on a drab and rainy day, wishing they had something to do. And then a tall and chatty feline in a red-and-white-striped hat arrives to teach the children how to have good fun that is funny (even when the sun isn’t sunny). The Cat’s whimsical games (decried by the worrisome goldfish, Fish) escalate from indoor kites to absolute hullabaloo when he introduces two things known as Thing One and Thing Two. And the house (not to mention mom’s dress) gets wrecked and the mess must be vanquished before she gets home.
But everything works out in time and in rhyme in this vibrant take on the seminal children’s classic, which comes alive through animated performances aided by costumes and wordplay drawn straight from the Seussical source. Of this theatrical take, The Arizona Republic raves, “Dr. Seuss’ beloved storybook character has come to the right place when he takes the stage in the adaptation by Childsplay.”
Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post
It seems like everyone has played the stage at Tilles Center. Past performers include Yo-Yo Ma, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and even a full-size dragon—or at least a puppet version of one. But not all of their bigger acts come from afar. The venue also plays home to local artistic heroes such as the Eglevsky Ballet.
