Description

School is out for the summer, and 8-year-old Sheila is in for the adventure of a lifetime! Join Sheila and her friends on a daredevilish, whirlwind of a quest through the desert and a glorious pile of junk to defeat the Sting Brigade, the Council of Howls, the Death Cactus, and more. "The Girl Who Swallowed a Cactus" by Eric Coble is a 60-minute mystical and magical twist on traditional storytelling best for ages five and up.

 

Join us 45 minutes before showtime for a free craft (to be used during the show!), and stick around after the performance to get autographs from the performers. Don't forget to pick up your free Post-Show Packet filled with coloring pages, questions for the car ride home, and more!
