Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor's office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe - a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast.

From the moment this 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. But what will mum find when she gets home? Dr. Seuss's The Cat In The Hat is a lively, engaging "play with sound effects." Not a word has been changed in Dr. Seuss's classic, ensuring anyone who's read the story will be transported into the world they've always imagined.


Playhouse on Park has some funding available to allow students in need of financial assistance to attend productions. Please contact Kyle Reynolds via email or phone at (860) 523-5900 ext. 15 to discuss whether your school group can take advantage of some of this funding.
