The coolest ever rock-n-roll romp in a bug's world, capturing all the humor and whimsy of the wildly popular books. Insects rule in the diaries of unlikely best friends: Worm, Spider, and Fly. Worm eats his homework, fly believes she has superpowers, and Spider can't wait to grow up and molt. Promoting eco-consciousness, Earth science, and tolerance of others, this performance is a joyfu, hip musical exploration of the world outside. You might just find that a bug's life is not all that different from your own.
