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 and 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 your own backyard. You might just find that a bug’s life is not all that different from your own!
Both onstage and on camera, guest director Bob Hess has worked extensively as an actor and director, appearing in and/or directing on the stages of nearly every theater in the Metroplex. He also serves as adjunct professor of theater at the University of North Texas.
“I’m thrilled to make my directorial debut at DCT with this show,” Hess said. “Every time I mention it to friends with children, their eyes light up. Their kids LOVE these books.”
They may be little, but they’re cool. Bugs and insects rule! Enjoyed by ages 4 and above.
