Seuss Poetry Contest

THE CAT IN THE HAT, I CAN DO THAT! 


Ihonor of Dr. Seuss, Childsplay and First Things First invite you to create a poem together as a
family. Up to 52 families will be chosen to have their poems read onstage at a performance of
The Cat in the Hat. Each winning family will receive two free tickets to the performance (or a
future Childsplay production if you’re smart like the Cat and already booked your seats). One
grand prize winner will also receive a $100 gift card to Changing Hands bookstore.

In honor of Dr. Seuss, Childsplay and First Things First invite you to create a rhyming poem together as a class. Up to three classes will be chosen to have their poems read onstage at each performance of The Cat in the Hat. One grand prize winner will receive a free future class field trip for up to 20 students.
