Everyone’s favorite cat comes to mischievous life in a lively, engaging theatrical adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat in the Amaturo Theater. From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat that they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and the craziest of ideas, he is certainly loads of fun. He turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure – but what will mum find when she gets home?

General admission is $10 until the week of the show and then $15. Lap tickets for children 12 months and under are available for $5. Buy tickets online at BrowardCenter.org, by phone at 954.462.0222 or in person at the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office.

This performance is intended to create a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as for individuals with other sensitivity issues or developmental disabilities. Slight adjustments are made to the production including reduced sound levels, no flashing or strobe lights and minimal special effects. As a plus, a pre-show arts and crafts activity with Young At Art Museum will take place before the performance, plus a post-show meet and greet with the cast of the show.

To provide additional comfort for attendees and their families, an area adjacent to the theater is designated as a quiet room with specially trained volunteers to provide audience support. Patrons may bring their own headphones, fidgets and other calming items into the theater or borrow these items at the theater. Ticket buyers will receive an email prior to the performance with a link to a character guide and a short video about attending the theater.

The Broward Center’s sensory-inclusive programming is made possible through the generous support of the Taft Foundation with special thanks to UM-NSU CARD for their in-kind support.
