The Desert Players of Tohono Chul, a live-action pantomime group, are back this summer with another entertaining and educational show about the desert and the fascinating creatures who live here.

Come along with Shadow and Eve, two Lesser Long-nosed bats as they make their way home on migration to our desert from far down in Mexico. But wait…Shadow has arrived, yet Eve is still missing. What has happened to her? Has she been eaten by a predator, or is she lost, or has she come to some kind of peril along the way?

Meet familiar characters such as Night Eyes, the Great Horned Owl, and Ditzy Star, who has fallen down from the sky, as well as our two charming Elf Owls, Midget and Moonbeam, who all offer their thoughts as to where Eve might be.

A mystical Barn Owl named Spirit may have the answer. After all, he can see into the future and knows secrets about many things that happen in the dark hours of the night.

Stick around after the performance for a chance to dance and interact with the characters! Bat and owl mask templates will be available for kids to complete at home.
