The Cat in the Hat: Puppet Style

5414

A couple of weekends ago the nephew & I headed to the Center for Puppetry Arts. A belle was excited since I grew up off Dr. Seuss. What’s cool about this center is that it houses several of Jim Henson‘s Muppet creations & much more. Now until July 28th, the center will be performing Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in The Hat.

This isn’t just any performance (directed by Jon Ludwig)–it is full of beautiful puppets that light up the stage. There’s something about seeing an iconic feline dance across the stage with the fierce red/white hat. Actually when he dances there were 3 puppeteers controlling him. He had moves, y’all! Our eyes lit up just watching the impressive cat!

After the performance, the audience was given a behind-the-scenes look at the puppets & the puppeteers who brought them to life. Seeing & experiencing the voices, teamwork, things flying in the air, & the magic was awesome! Take a look below at all the fun we got into after the performance & touring the museum. We headed upstairs to create shadow puppets & put on a performance for others to see–literally. This was SO. MUCH.FUN!!! I had to create a jazzy puppet too.

We ran into Big Bird at the center too! The nephew told me he’s going to be taller than Big Bird because his doctor told him so. I then told him if that happens he would get everyone’s attention—EVERYDAY. ALL DAY!! LOL. 🙂 He ain’t called Big Bird for nothing. You have to see him in person at the Center for Puppetry Arts!!!!
