Ignore fish; come play with ‘Cat in the Hat’

In celebration of March is Reading Month, Allegan High School Drama will present Dr. Seuss’s children’s story “The Cat in the Hat” Thursday, March 26, to Saturday, March 28, in the Allegan Performing Arts Center.

The story follows the escapades of Boy and his sister Sally on a rainy day after they get an unexpected visit from the Cat in the Hat and his misbehaving Things.

The play not only follows the beloved children’s book word-for-word but also utilizes hundreds of sound effects. The production also plans some audience interaction.
