"This raucous, joyous show spiritedly offers an intoxicating mix of educational & entertaining fare.” (Dallas Morning News)

Bugs and insects rule in the diary 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, DIARY OF A WORM, A SPIDER & A FLY is a joyful, hip exploration of the world outside. The opening number, a rap entitled “A Lot Like You,” immediately connects our lives with the little creatures from our own backyards.

It’s the first day of school and everyone wants to look cool. Teacher Mrs. McBee assigns “All About Me” reports for homework. Spider boasts about his magnificent legs, Fly is preparing to protect the planet, Butterfly looks forward to migrating to Mexico, and Ant shows off his strength. Worm can’t stop himself from eating his assignments, but is that the real reason he won’t complete this one? Will Fly get her own room away from 327 brothers and sisters, or find her superpowers in time to save Aunt Rita? Why has Spider missed DAYS of school? And who will be the lucky members of The Dirt Bag Club? When Worm finally finds his confidence, it’s a celebration of all the world’s little creatures, and their place and importance to the Earth!

You might just find that a bug’s life is not all that different from your own!
