I love Father’s Day. This is completely due to the fact that I have the most amazing husband who also happens to be an equally amazing father. This day generally lends itself nicely to spending time together as a family, and this past Father’s Day was no exception.
After a morning filled with yummy food and wonderful snuggles, we headed downtown for an afternoon performance of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat at the Center for Puppetry Arts.
Let me tell you a bit more about the show.
We arrived early, as seating on the long wooden benches is available on a first come, first served basis. I wanted to sit a bit closer to the front, though I know from experience that you can see wonderfully from anywhere!
The story of The Cat in the Hat is one that we are quite familiar with. However, I was anxious to see how the story translated into a live-action puppet show. The puppets used were Rod and Animation style _____
At the conclusion of the show, we had the opportunity to participate in the Create A Puppet Workshop. These workshops are included with the price of admission! The puppet that we were able to create was a Cat In The Hat shadow puppet.
We simply picked up a bag of supplies at the door of the workshop room and were able to create our very own puppet! There is even an area in the room where your child can put on a puppet show after their puppet is complete.
We had a wonderful time attending Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat at the Center for Puppetry Arts. The show will be there through July 28 and I recommend that you reserve your tickets now as some showings will sell out fast.
