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 canʼt 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 our own backyards. You might just find that a bugʼs life is not all that different from your own!

Commissioned by Oregon Childrenʼs Theatre and debuting in 2011, DIARY OF A WORM, A SPIDER AND A FLY is a delightful stage adaptation by Joan Cushing. Cushing unites three popular books by Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss: “Diary of a Worm,” “Diary of a Spider,” and “Diary of a Fly.” All three present smart, compelling scientific information along with the everyday activities, hopes and dreams of amiable insect characters. With the addition of Bee, Ant and Butterfly, Cushing combines the best of the Arthropods with rap, hip-hop, ballads and boogie-woogie in a hot musical that will have audiences wiggling in their seats to the beat.
