SCT is partnering with The From-Home Fest to present a digital production of The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus, written by Eric Coble and performed live on Zoom by Tia Shearer Bassett.

School is out for the summer, the weather is hot and the boredom is heavy. But 8-year-old Sheila and her pack of pals aren’t going to let the summer heat wear them down. When their fantastical junkyard fort draws the attention of a walking, talking, surprisingly well-dressed coyote, the adventurers suddenly 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, and how we take on the mission of saving the world from ourselves. A unique twist on traditional storytelling, where a bit of moonlight brings a menagerie of found objects to life, this original play shows that the power of memory and imagination can captivate and inspire audiences of all ages.

Tickets will go on sale in Fall 2024. Stay tuned.
