Could You Hug a Cactus

Performed by University of Utah Youth Theatre
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?

This show was created during the COVID-19 pandemic. Could You Hug A Cactus? was made specifically for all the young performers and communities affected by this unprecedented circumstance, as a way to help kids connect and perform together.

Audience grades 3 - 5
Interactive teaching materials will be sent with video link

The performance is available to purchase and view from April 26 through June 4
