School's out for the summer, and the New Mexico air is hot, even in the darkest part of the night. But 8-year-old Sheila and her scrappy pack of pals aren't going to let the summer heat get them down.
When their fantastical junkyard fort draws the attention of a mysterious furry stranger, this band of misfit kids suddenly find themselves deep in the desert, face to face with the walking, talking critters who live there. It's a whirlwind adventure about humans' effect on the environment and the animals with whom we share the planet. And, spoiler alert: somebody swallows a cactus!
Presented outdoors at Totsburg in Bloomsburg Town Park, The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus features a cast of BTE members and friends. This unique twist on traditional fable-style storytelling will captivate the imaginations of audiences of all ages!
