“Wild, Wooly, & Wonderful” puppets at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Center for Puppetry Arts® is pleased to announce its newest special exhibit: Wild, Wooly, & Wonderful opened in April. The wonders of nature have long inspired art, writing and performance. Puppeteers everywhere, from Africa to South America, use animals to tell stories about their cultures, traditions and everyday life. This exhibit showcases different ways animals are represented by artists and how those representations relate the artist’s cultural heritage and creative talent.

Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is set to delight audiences this summer, making its Center for Puppetry Arts debut June 13-July 28.  The story features everyone’s favorite moments with Sally and her brother, their pet Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2—and, of course, the story’s namesake, that famous Cat in the red and white striped hat! Zany fun and adventures abound in this memorable tale!

The classic children’s book was originally adapted and directed by Katie Mitchell for the National Theatre of Great Britain and was a smash hit in London. The show is now being produced across the U.S. and the Center for Puppetry Arts is thrilled to realize this delightfully funny story through puppetry.
