10/16 The Girl Who Swallowed a Cactus

Saturday, October 16th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. is the last of Denmark Arts Center’s Family FUN Days and they are proud to present Children’s Museum & Theater of Maine’s (CMTM) new show, The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus!


Thanks to the generous support of Kendal C. & Anna Ham Charitable Foundation,

Maine Bicentennial Commission, Davis Family Foundation, and Town of Denmark,

DAC has been able to provide Family FUN performances with a ‘pay-what-you-can’ ticket

approach. The performances have delighted the community and Children’s Theater of

Maine promises to deliver a morning of fun with this performance.


Sheila has one whole summer to create the perfect fort, and she has four amazing friends to help her do it. When topping their fantastical junk castle with a magical object, they find themselves transported into the scorched desert, facing a series of dangerous challenges from the Council of Howls, the Sting Brigade, and the Death Cactus itself. Through storytelling and found object puppetry, this play explores the relationship between wild animals and the humans that encroach their lands. How can we share the planet? How can we take on the mission to save the world ourselves? The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus is a one person tour-de-force of imagination, storytelling, and magic. Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company INC. of Woodstock, IL.


The recent rise in COVID cases due to the Delta Variant and concern for audiences, staff, artist, and community safety, Denmark Arts Center will now require masks when inside, regardless of vaccination status. Unfortunately, concessions will not be offered at this time and they are sorry for the inconvenience.


Family Fun SaturDAYS are a Pay-What-You-Can this season. Pre-registration is requested.
