THE CAT IN THE HAT
Based on the book by Dr. Seuss • Adapted by Katie Mitchell • Originally produced at the National Theatre of Great Britain
February 21-April 26, 2014 on ZACH's Kleberg Stage
Sally and her brother are stuck home in the rain, when a Cat comes knocking at the window pane! But the Cat has brought friends, Thing One and Thing Two, who make messes and problems and oh, what to do?! Mischief and mayhem and laughter galore, bring the kids—they’ll clamor for more!
Based on the book by Carlo Collodi
April 18-May 24, 2014 on ZACH's Whisenhunt Stage
Step in Geppetto’s workshop in this imaginative retelling of an ageless classic! With puppetry, shadow and illusion, a simple carpenter transforms his workshop into a fantastic quest of a puppet trying to be a real boy. But will the all-too-tempting delights of the outside world be too much for Pinocchio? When Geppetto is swallowed by a whale, it is up to this little puppet to show his courage in this story of love, family and adventure.
