When school is out, there’s nothing to do and the desert sun beats down hot, Sheila and her friends find themselves in search of something – anything – interesting to explore. So when a walking, talking, and surprisingly well-dressed coyote shows up, the kids find themselves on the adventure of a lifetime! Filled with magical realism and surprises at every turn, this funny story of friendship and imagination will bring the desert landscape to life. Families will love this brand new, original play, told by actor Kate Haas--all by herself!
