Fayette County library to present children’s play over spring break
The Fayette County Public Library Children’s sectiion is excited to bring a literary play to the stage during this year’s spring break. The Columbus State University Theatre Department will be coming on April 2 at 10 a.m. to present their show “The Diary of a Fly, Spider and Worm” based on the books by Doreen Cronin.
Look at the world with a new perspective... through the many eyes of bugs. Is Spider getting too big for his own skin? Will Fly find her superhero powers? Can Worm stand on his own feet (even though he really doesn’t have any)? A masterful fusion of excitement and education, this adventure is as delightfully absurd and joyously playful as the wildly popular book series. Walk alongside the worm, the spider, and the fly as they learn to overcome many of the same life challenges that we face and emerge with a better understanding - and appreciation - for who they are.
The children’s librarian, Ada Demlow, previewed this show at its premiere and says that it is best suited for children ages 4 years through third or fourth grade. “I found the show to be extremely well done, with lots of humor — and an important message about appreciating your own special gifts,” said Demlow. The show lasts about 45 minutes.
This program is presented as part of Fayette Kids Read, a program that kicked off at the Fayette County Library this past January, offers monthly reading selections for children ages 7 and older, along with programs to encourage further exploration of the books read.
The program also encourages and provides opportunities to share their reading experiences with friends and family.
