Directed by Troy Scheid. Musical Direction by Claudia Dyle.  Weekend Family Performances Saturdays at 1pm and 4pm: October 1, 8, 15 & 22, 2011.

    It’s the first day of school, and Worm, Spider, and Fly are excited to catch up with friends and begin the year, but each critter faces a unique challenge. Based on the ever-popular books, Diary of a Worm, ...a Spider, and … a Fly, this play reminds us that all creatures want to be recognized, appreciated and loved!

    Recommended for Pre-kindergarten and up. No children under 3 allowed in the theater (including sleeping babies).

    Special Events:

    On Saturday, October 1st, MST will launch its first-ever book club, Page to Stage, at the Blue Willow Bookshop at 10am!

    Parking:

    Parking at Chelsea Market is easy. There is a large parking lot behind the center. Should that be full, a pass through halfway up on the right will take you to an additional surface lot as well as street parking on Chelsea. The entrance to the parking lot can be found on the north side of the building next to the O'Rourke's Steak House.

    Though parking at Chelsea Market is easy, getting there may be a challenge with the construction involved with the Soutwest Freeway Project. MST recommends that you allow plenty of time for detours and unexpected delays, as there is no late seating once the show starts.

    Arriving early and planning on lunch or an afternoon treat at a Montrose eatery may solve the traffic blues.
