Dallas Children’s Theater presents Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly

© 2011 Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss. By special arrangement with Pippin Properties, Inc. and Gurman Agency LLC.

The coolest ever rock-n-roll romp through a bug’s world commands center stage in this hip-hoppin’ musical that promotes eco-consciousness, earth science, and tolerance of others. The popular characters from the bestselling books are not so unusual: Worm eats his homework and has no legs. Fly has 327 siblings and wants to be a superhero. And Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt.

When Fly’s Aunt Rita needs help getting out of a tight spot, the squad must combine their talents and work as a team on the rescue mission of a lifetime. While there’s no pop quiz, you might just learn that a bug’s life isn’t that different from your own.

Get to know all the critters in the class!

Worm, Spider, and Fly have been studying their environment all year long… and now they are ready to share the facts they have learned with you and your family.

Before each performance for a critter-themed craft that will have you bugging out big time. As is tradition, photo ops abound and actors will sign autographs at all performances. And, exclusively after the show on opening night, all are welcome to cool off with a snow cone from Big D Kona Ice.
