BEAVER CREEK — The Vilar Performing Arts Center presents the live stage adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat,” performed by Childsplay, the nationally recognized professional theater for young audiences. The show will be the second performance of the annual Supporting The Arts Reaching Students series. Tickets are $11 for children and $14 for adults and are on sale now at the VPAC Box Office.

Arguably the most famous children’s book of all time, Childsplay is one of only a handful of theater companies in the United States to perform the adaptation, making this high-energy and hilarious show a “must-see” for families.

“You can boil everything down to fun … simple and clear,” said David Barker, director of “The Cat in the Hat.” “The Cat wants to have fun. And so do we! The show feels just as youthful and exhilarating as reading a Dr. Seuss book.”

From the moment his tall, red-and-white striped hat appears at their door, Sally and her brother know that the Cat in the Hat is the most mischievous cat they will ever meet. Suddenly, the Cat and his antics transform a rainy afternoon. Can the kids clean up before mom comes home? With some tricks (and a fish) and Thing Two and Thing One, with The Cat in The Hat, the fun’s never done.
