The Enchanted Playhouse

by Lorie Lewis Ham

Most of us are familiar with the old Hans Christian Anderson Fairytale the Princess and the Pea–especially the part about a young woman who claimed to be a real princess, and how the Queen gave her a test of whether she could feel a pea under 20 mattresses–if she could, then she was a real princess and fit to marry the prince.

The world of Dr. Seuss comes to life in The Cat Is Back now playing at the Enchanted Playhouse in Visalia. The children’s show was co-directed by Debbie Metzler and Kay Whistler. The story, which is an amalgamation of various Dr. Seuss stories: The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and The Sneetches and Other Stories, was adapted by director Debbie Metzler.
