The performance is a musical adaptation of the classic children’s novel about an orphaned boy, five gigantic insects, and the adventure of a lifetime.

Associate Professor of Musical Theater and Voice, Eric-Richard de Lora, is excited to do a show that is full of so many twists and turns. “There are so many surprises in this story – you have no idea where it’s going to go.” De Lora is impressed with the cast, “This particular group of actors has really connected with the fun aspects of the story. They have the opportunity to be a little crazy and unnatural.” De Lora hopes people connect with the theme of the show, “family isn’t just one thing, it’s something we create and something we construct with those around us.”
