Book, Music & Lyrics by Joan Cushing

Is Spider getting too big for his own skin? Will Fly find her superhero powers in time to save her Aunt Rita from peril? Will Worm learn to stand on his own two feet...even though he doesn't have feet?  Take a look at the world from a bug's perspective and you'll see that their lives are a lot like ours.

This musical captures all of the humor and whimsy of the wildly popular books by Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss.
