Could You Hug a Cactus?

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?

Summer Teen Production

Join us for HMT's first ever non-musical production!

She Kills Monsters: Young
Adventurers Edition

She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Age Range

Auditions are open to actors ages 13*-18.

*Please Note: The Young Adventures Edition is intended for high school students and contains some mild adult themes/language. Middle school students may audition with parental permission. If you would like to preview the script, you can do so from the Concord Theatricals website or on Amazon.
