Beowulf Alley Theatre Presents


The World Premiere of


A Cactus Christmas

by John Vornholt

directed by Pat Timm


(Tucson, AZ) Beowulf Alley Theatre will present a family-friendly holiday production, A Cactus Christmas, written especially for their theatre by local writer, John Vornholt, directed by Pat Timm. The production will be presented from December 8-24 at the theatre, 11 South 6th Avenue and is suitable for ages 6 years and older.


In the ghost town of Wishbone, AZ is a run-down saloon. Two desert rats, Alice and Pete, have taken up residence declaring squatter’s rights. They are in search of TheTreasure Trove of the Lost Turk. When a family of well-off East Coast visitors arrives looking for a tour of ghost towns, Pete drums up a plan to take advantage of the Easterners’ good fortune but somehow that darned ghost keeps interfering.


Vornholt is the director of Active Imagination Theatre at Beowulf Alley Theatre where he's developed and directed five plays for children. He's also written two plays that have been produced at Beowulf Alley: The First Third for Page on the Stage 2010, and Off Leash for Out to Lunch Theatre.
