NEW WILMINGTON, PA — Westminster College’s Celebrity Series for Kids will host two showings of “Diary of a Worm, a Spider & a Fly” on Monday, May 20, in the Will W. Orr Auditorium on Westminster’s campus.

Produced by Dallas Children’s Theater, the show is based on the books Diary of a Worm, Diary of a Spider and Diary of a Fly by Doreen Cronin, the New York Times bestselling author of the Caldecott Honor Book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type.

Capturing all the humor and whimsy of the popular books, the show is a fun rock-n-roll romp in a bug’s world, where insects rule in the diaries of unlikely best friends: Worm, Spider and Fly. Worm eats his homework, Fly believes she has superpowers and Spider can’t wait to grow up and molt. Promoting eco-consciousness, earth science and tolerance of others, this is a joyful, hip musical exploration of the world outside.

The show is sponsored by Dr. Richard Ribarevsky, Dr. Anthony Uberti and the New Wilmington Family Medicine Association, Arts & Education at the Hoyt Center for the Arts, Springfield Restaurant Group, and EngKeat Teh and the Acupuncture Health Network.

The show is recommended for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Although the 10:30 a.m. show is sold out, tickets for the 6:30 p.m. performance are available online at or by calling the box office at 724-946-7354.
