Have you been past the Stirling Festival Theatre lately? If you haven’t, you should, because if you look up at the marquee (that’s the entrance, or to be more accurate the sort of roof over the entrance), you will see not the Cat, but his Hat. Yes, he is in residence, and he has hung his Hat on the marquee! It looks grand and it reminds everyone that Seussical The Musical, based on some of Dr. Seuss’s best work is in rehearsal as I write.

It’s not long till opening night. The show runs from August 3 – 19, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (and on Sunday 13, too). Our huge cast of 38 is working away rehearsing, as you can see from the picture (you’ll see that the Cat is wearing the Hat for the show).

To celebrate this very special show we have a very special offer, just for customers of the Quinte Mall.   Come to the Mall’s Community Booth on 27, 28 or 29 July (that means in the next three days!) and our staff will be there with a real bargain. Buy a special voucher for one adult ticket for $28 (plus applicable taxes and fees) and you will get two, yes TWO, youth tickets absolutely free. We really can’t say fairer than that but only one voucher per family.

This is going to be a great show full of Dr. Seuss’s wonderful creations and lots of music dancing – and laughter. And Dr. Seuss’s very special verses too, of course.

Don’t take my word, book now. It’s a great show for children of all ages and everyone who has ever discovered the joy of Dr. Seuss’s amazing imagination. Tickets cost $28 for adults (less for seniors and members) and $15 for youth (all plus applicable fees and taxes), so you can see what a bargain you can get this week at the Quinte Mall. But if you can’t get there you can book (without the special offer, I’m afraid) on line at www.stirlingfestivaltheatre.com, by phoning 613-395-2100 or in person at our Box Office, under the Cat’s Hat!

See you all at the show!
