The beloved children's book from the ever-inventive Dr. Seuss comes to life onstage at Aurora Theatre, as a talented cast of eight actors and puppeteers tell the tale of the world's most mischievous cat. When Mom steps out to run some errands one rainy afternoon, Sally and her brother soon find themselves playing unwitting hosts to a cat, decked out in a signature bow tie and towering red and white hat, and his havoc-wreaking cohorts: Thing One and Thing Two. Despite objections from the family's talking goldfish, mayhem ensues ... and it won't be too long before Mom makes her way home. Directed by Jaclyn Hoffman, The Cat in the Hat is full of wild and wacky fun for young ones. Learn More

Very cleverly written. Sometimes the script would pass by so quickly that it would take some thought as to what happened! Liked the enthusiasm of the actors, who obviously are extremely talented to have memorized the script and presented it with such precision. This is a play which seeing it again would help the viewer catch up with the fast pace. Overall it was a great experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The play's shockingly optimistic tone is downright subversive when you consider its subject: what it means to be a success in America. How are the new legends made? Slightly unsound of mind and decidedly stout of heart." --<em>Louisville Courier-Journal </em>
- "There's exuberance and bounce in Nachtrieb's voice, and <em>Bob</em> evinces a loving, Ira Glass-y eye for off-kilter Americana." --Rob Kendt, <em>American Theatre Magazine </em>
Directed by Sean Daniels
It is said that Bob was born on Valentine’s Day in the bathroom of a White Castle Restaurant in Kentucky. It is said that Bob’s birth mother Helen had a particular loneliness on this holiday that only a certain greasy cuisine could soothe. Armed with nothing but unfailing optimism, Bob is the epic, fast-paced comedy of one man’s dream to be great. The greatness of Bob.
