The Girl Who Swallowed a Cactus

October 28, 2023 - November 12, 2023

by Eric Coble

Directed by Leslie J. Miller

Starring Kyleigh Sacco

8-year-old Sheila and her pack of pals aren’t going to let the summer heat wear them down. The adventurers find themselves deep in the desert, facing The Council of Howls, The Sting Brigade, The Death Cactus, and much more. It’s a whirlwind adventure about how we affect the environment and the animals with whom we share the planet. This original play will captivate and inspire audiences of all ages with the power of memory and imagination.

Reviews & Testimonials

"It's a compelling tale for all ages, including those of us who belong to a generation that has failed to do the heavy-lifting of making the earth (air, water, soil, you name it) a better place."
