The Cat in the Hat
Rangiora Town Hall, High St, Rangiora
Two bored kids. One rainy day. And one crazy cat wearing a red-striped hat. In 1957, Theodor Seuss Geisel used this formula and only 200 words to write his second children’s book as Dr. Seuss. More than 50 years later, this zany, imaginative play is coming to Rangiora for some school holiday fun. Spoiler alert: Things run amuck, and quickly.
