We’re Excited for a New Season of Two Bugs

Two Bugs are Better than One actresses, Abigail Esfira Campbell (ANNA) and Maggie Lalley (LIZA SPINELLI, MONTY THE MOSQUITO, SLY THE FLY, AND FIONA THE FIREFLY), express their excitement as they prepare to perform for the best audiences around New York – PreK through 3rd grade students!

About Two Bugs Are Better Than One

Students at the Peachtree School for Insects are up to their usual antics, but today there is a buzz in the air because Fiona the Firefly, the leader of their community, has disappeared! Marvin and Anna, a scatter-brained moth and a studious worker bee, are assigned the duty of finding Fiona and bringing her back to safety. During this 45-minute original musical, children will travel with Marvin and Anna on an epic journey of self-discovery. Along the way, they’ll meet a sassy spider, a dramatic mosquito and a sly fly, all of whom teach an important lesson about how collaboration, cooperation and self-confidence can help save the day!

Two Bugs are Better than One introduces students to teamwork, facing new challenges and celebrating each other’s differences. The show was created by Jenny Stafford and Willem Oosthuysen, was originally developed by Dev Bondarin and directed by Bill Bowers.
