Theodore Seuss Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, said, “You’re never too old, never too wacky, never too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
Next week, Live Oak Public Libraries celebrates Read Across America Week with one of Dr. Seuss’ favorite characters: “The Cat in the Hat.”
Former Cirque du Soleil performer Reuben Haller will bring the popular Dr. Seuss book, “The Cat in the Hat” to life @ various library branches:
Tybee Branch Library, Wed., March 11, 11:30 a.m.
Rincon Branch Library, Wed., March 11, 4 p.m.
Oglethorpe Mall Branch Library, Wed., March 11, 6:30 p.m.
Liberty Branch Library, Thurs., March 12, 10 a.m.
Thunderbolt Branch Library, Thurs., March 12, 1 p.m.
Islands Branch Library, Thurs., March 12, 4 p.m.
The show is about 45 minutes. Haller will play “The Cat,” and will recruit young members of the audience to put on costumes (including the well-known blue wigs) and play the roles of Thing 1 and Thing 2. The show will include puppetry, slapstick, stories and music. Haller also plays cat-oriented songs on his mandolin.
You may recognize Haller as “Fiddlin’ Dan the Mountain Man” from his performances last year during the Summer Reading Program. Another of his aliases is Ruby the Clown, when he is performing for the Big Apple Circus at Children’s Hospital in Atlanta.
