Discover musical wonders in a bug’s world! Bug Symphony the award-winning musical tells the hilarious tale of two humans who are interrupted by a bug orchestra while having a picnic in the forest. They then find themselves on a quest to find the missing notes of the golden orb spider in time for a performance for the Queen Bee’s coronation. During the search, they encounter a cockroach on jazz saxophone, a Broadway stinger and a deadly killer bug! A must-see show for all the family!
