Spring 2021 Virtual Musical

Musical Description:

Based on a collection of whimsical poems by Phillip Van Wagoner, Could You Hug A Cactus? is a musical revue that follows a group of kids as they come together to create a show that’s bursting with poems and creativity. One by one, they each share their imaginative creations, until a nervous performer panics and refuses to contribute a poem. Can the cast help him shed self-doubt and ignite a creative spark?

Could You Hug A Cactus? is presented through special arrangement with Beat by Beat Press (www.bbbpress.com)

Registration is now closed.

This virtual production is for any child ages 7-14 that likes to sing, act, dance, or just have fun. This will be a great theatrical experience for all children, from those who have never performed to those who love the stage. All rehearsals (and the performance) will be conducted virtually. Stay tuned for details about how the production will be released.
