AMAZING show, go see it and judge for yourself but make sure you understand that everything is in Spanish and it is the same thing over and over but is telling a story.

Directed by Stan Foote

Adapted from _Diary of a Worm, Diary of a Spider, and Diary of a Fly_ by Doreen Cronin with illustrations by Harry Bliss

Book and music by Joan Cushing. Published by HarperCollins, Inc., New York. Used with permission of Pippin Properties, Inc. 

Is Spider getting too big for his own skin? Will Fly find her superhero powers in time to save her Aunt Rita from peril? Will Worm learn to stand on his own two feet…even though he doesn’t have any feet? We invite you to take a look at the world from a bug’s perspective. Perhaps you’ll see that their lives are not all that different from yours.

From the smallest bugs to the tallest giraffes, we are all dependent on each other to keep our earth healthy. This play is 90% recycled, reused, and locally made!

This world premiere musical captures all of the droll humor and whimsy of the wildly popular books by Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss.
