Family Fun Days wrap up with a presentation of Children’s Museum & Theater of Maine’s new show “The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Denmark Arts Center.

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?

Denmark Arts Center will now require masks when inside regardless of vaccination status. Unfortunately, concessions will not be offered at this time; we are sorry for the inconvenience.

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