It’s not easy being a bug, especially on the first day of school! But luckily for Worrying Worm, Fearless Fly, and Sassy Spider, every creature finds its special talent in Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly. Spider waits anxiously to shed his skin; Worm feels self-conscious and embarrassed for having no legs, and Fly’s 327 brothers and sisters drive her so crazy that she can hardly focus on schoolwork. Based on the bestselling books, this hysterical coming-of-age musical directed by the renowned Rob Urbinati will have the whole family cheering on the quirky crawlers as they face problems and milestones common to us all.
