2nd-8th Grade

Tuesday, December 22, 11:00 AM-12:15 PM EST

Join Melissa (and possibly some other DMR Staff and interns) as we bring back our popular read-through series! We're introducing titles that we're interested in producing, and we'd love to get student feedback!

This drop in class requires no homework and no advance knowledge of the play! Roles are randomly assigned. You'll be reading via screen share and listening (and perhaps singing along) with the music.

You'll receive a link to join us on Zoom, either with your email confirmation or in a separate email from Active (

Synopsis of 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?
