PLAY SYNOPSIS 
This faithful adaptation of the children's story takes us on a journey with the Cat in the Hat! Sally and Sam sit at home watching the rain when suddenly their day gets a little brighter and zanier! The Cat along with the fish and Thing 1 and Thing 2 make for an unforgettable story! Watch as their house is filled with life and surprises! 

PERFORMANCE DATES  
March 3 - 11, 2017
Rehearsals start January 17, 2017

TO AUDITION
You have 2-3 minutes to audition:
1. You can share some movement abilities (dance, circus style, or aerial). There will be aerial rigging in place. Do not showcase anything that isn't practiced and safe!
2. You can pick a 2 minute section of any Dr. Seuss story to perform memorized.
3. You can do both of the above.

Be CREATIVE above all!!

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS 
Narrator: The Boy grown up. Tells the story.

The Cat: Our central character. Needs good movement and improv skills.

Sally: Boy's sister. Good body language skills a must!

Boy: Sally's Brother. Central character that matches up well with Sally.

The Fish: The fish is a puppet that will be performed by an extension of the fish. Meaning the actor should "be the fish." 

Thing 1 and Thing 2: Crazy, highly energized "things" that are all about fun. Movement skills such as dance, acrobatics and aerial could be used.

Mom: The mother in the story who arrives home at the very end.

4 Kittens: Movement based roles. Dance, Acrobatics, Aerial. Cat's assistants in the context of the play.
