More 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!
