If you are looking for something to do with Thing One and Thing Two look no further than the iconic stripy hat for the live on stage production of The Cat in the Hat.
Residents can watch Dr Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat live on stage at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on 29 June at 10.30 am.
The whole family will enjoy this zany performance that brings Dr Suess’s beloved story to life, a favourite on bookshelves for over 50 years.
It tells the story of a brother and sister bored at home on a rainy day when suddenly they are visited by the cat in his iconic stripy hat.
He teaches them how to make their own fun with nothing but a little imagination and that’s where things start to get messy.
Originally created by the National Theatre of Great Britain, the show has been toured by The Showcase Entertainment Group with sell out shows in New Zealand and Australia.
Now they are bringing it to the Moncrieff for a one-off performance that should be a highlight of the July school holidays.
Brad Thomson of the Showcase Entertainment Group said audiences were in for a treat.
“It’s a highly entertaining, fast-paced and audience inclusive experience filled with laughs, a little bit of dancing and a lot of fun!” he said.
“I think this story has stood the test of time due to its simplistic rhyming patterns, repetition and humour,” he said.
“Young readers just find the Cat in the Hat’s antics hilarious and can relate.
“And of course, Thing One and Thing Two have a place in all our hearts – they just want to have a good time!”
While the group have never performed in Bundaberg before, Brad said they were all really looking forward to it.
“It’s such a lovely part of Australia that we didn’t want to miss it on our way through and the theatre looks beautiful too,” he said.
“Of course, we are all looking forward to sipping on an ice-cold Bundaberg Ginger Beer and hopefully doing a tour of the factory!”
