Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is performed by six skilled puppeteers using full-bodied rod puppets on a tabletop stage. Small control rods (painted black) extend from each of the character’s heads, elbows, and feet. The puppeteers manipulate these rods in order to make their puppets walk, talk, and gesture. It often takes two to three puppeteers working together to bring each puppet to life. Character voices are all performed live by the cast. Each puppeteer wears a cordless microphone to amplify her/his voice.
