Diary of a Worm, a Spider, & a Fly

The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Ave Eau Claire, WI 54703
Is Spider getting too big for his own skin? Will Fly find her superhero powers in time to save her Aunt Rita from peril? Will Worm learn to stand on his own feet...even though he doesn't have feet? We invite you to take a look at the world from a bug's perspective. Perhaps you'll see that their lives are not all that different from ours. This musical captures all of the droll humor and whimsy of the wildly popular books.

Reserved seats are available, $8 for youth/students and $12 for adults/seniors. Tickets may be purchased online at www.ecct.org, by calling 715-839-877, or at the door.

Small Potatoes

Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 South High Street, Chippewa Falls, wi
Nineteen years ago the Chicago area duo Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso decided to hit the road. The early years were hard going - thus the Small Potatoes name - but more than a million miles, 3000 shows and five Dodge Caravans later, they are now considered a favorite act by many venues across the U.S. They say it has taken “years of careful indecision” to come up with a mix of music that ranges from country, blues and swing to Irish. They sing, play guitars and other instruments, and even yodel. An irresistible show!
