The Cat in the Hat will stop by Northgate Mall on Saturday for stories, singing and dancing.
Long-time educator Terri Morley will come dressed as the favorite Dr. Seuss character for free shows at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., Saturday, at the Durham mall's Center Court. March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday and the annual National Read Across America Day.
The shows include excerpts from several of Dr. Seuss' stories along with a reading of "Horton Hears a Who." Guests are encouraged to come dressed as the Cat in the Hat or another Seuss character and participate in a "Who" Parade of Characters. Afterwards, kids can visit with the Cat on stage. Bring your camera for pictures.
