Synopsis

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 the power of memory and imagination and will captivate and inspire audiences of all ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

TALKIN BROADWAY

“A beautiful sense of theatricality… hits all the right marks as both an intriguing fantasy-filled adventure story and a thoughtful lesson about man and the environment.”

VALLEY SCREEN AND STAGE

“Told with all the ebullience of a wide-eyed fifth grader who has so much to say she can’t wait to blurt it out, Coble’s script succeeds well in creating that childlike sense of playfulness and imagination. There’s nothing so satisfying as seeing a theatre full of children whose faces show how mesmerized they are as they hang on to every word Dust Cloud tells them.”
