Students will enjoy the coolest ever rock-n-roll romp through a bug’s world 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. Come to Dallas Children’s Theater and see a production that is the result of many hours of collaboration by various different theater artists, from the director to the cast and crew. While experiencing the show in DCT’s Baker Theater, students will also work on their own unique role in the performance: that of attentive and respectful audience members!
