One fish, two fish, red fish… Cat In The Hat?

In honor of the great Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2, a number of fun Dr. Seuss-themed activities are storming on-scene. So we sent IC Insider Luis and fam out to see the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre performance of The Cat In The Hat. And what we got in return would make our favorite children’s storyteller smile for sure. Here’s what Luis had to say:


The sun it was out but the weather still chilly
We decided to see a play that looked a bit silly
Every shoe was laced up, we brushed every tooth
And took our little ones to Tarkington Booth
Inside the theatre were children in mass
Who settled down quietly when out came the cast.
They sat in their rapture as the cat he did play
And begged to come back and see it another day.
Though rowdy they are, our things one and two
They sat and they listened like good children do.
“Again! Again!” They cried out in glee
“That cat is all that we want to see!”
No tears necessary for as you may know
That this and next week are lots other shows!
Not just one or two but THIRTEEN special starts
So quickly head to the campus of The Center for Performing Arts!

Luis Ruvalcaba - Indy's ChildIn late June, 2007 Luis Ruvacalba removed his laundry from the dryer to find that he had rendered all of his undershirts pink and shrunk his favorite red University of Arizona sweater.

At that point – as he says: “I realized: I need a wife. I married Katie in Sept of 2007. Aside from one lousy pen left in my pants pocket and numerous dried on Conner Prairie stickers, the laundry has gone pretty well since then.” Luis has four children: Maggie- 7, Micah- 5, Millie- 2, and Merritt- 1. Each of them helps him sharpen his parenting skills in new and unique ways. “Without Maggie I’d never have learned to put on tights. Without Micah I would have the weakest MMA fighting skills on the block. Millie challenges me to improve my search and rescue abilities. Merritt gives me weekly lessons in Matrix style urine dodging. Together we are the greatest family to ever ruin your family’s nice quiet afternoon at the park.”

Follow along with Luis as he helps shows you the best places to let your family run wild.
