RRCC to Present THE GIRL WHO SWALLOWED A CACTUS
Outdoor Pavilion Performance on Lakewood Campus
 
LAKEWOOD, CO - The Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Theatre Arts and Dance Department will present The Girl Who Swallowed a Cactus at the outdoor Pavilion at Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood Campus, on July 29, 30, 31 and August 5, 6, 7 at 6:30 pm. This production is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois. The script was written by Eric Coble. 
 
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. They create a fantastical junkyard fort, meet a walking, talking, surprisingly well-dressed coyote, and the real adventure begins. Suddenly, the kids are 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. 
 
Audience members may bring blankets, camp chairs, and picnics to join us on the beautiful lawn at the Pavilion for this 45-minute fantastical show for all ages. Puppets emerge from a real junkyard on stage to help our narrator, Dust Cloud, tell the story. All puppets in the show have been created from recycled materials by the innovative puppet artist Penny Benson and RRCC students.
 
Tickets are free (donations appreciated). Reservations may be made through this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4dadac22a1fa7-thegirl1
