About

Meet the wild animals who call the desert home.

School’s out for the summer, and Sheila and her friends are left with only the nearby junkyard and their imaginations to keep them busy. But when a truck driven by a coyote wearing cowboy boots rumbles by, they know they’re in for a fantastical adventure! This one-woman show starring Tia Shearer returns after being workshopped at the Kennedy Center’s New Visions/New Voices festival in 2018. Written by Eric Coble, directed by Julia Flood, and presented by St. Louis’s Metro Theater Company, the entrancing tale explores the relationship between wild animals and the humans that encroach their lands. As Sheila meets the Council of Howls, the String Brigade, and other characters of the wilderness, the desert comes to life in surprising new ways.

Most enjoyed by age 7 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
