Miss Spider's Tea Party:
Based on David Kirk’s children’s book of the same name, Miss Spider’s Tea Party springs to life on the stage of Akron Civic Theatre, weaving the tale of a lonely spider who just wants to have company over for tea. Sprightly dancers in pastel costumes morph into butterflies, bees, moths, and ants that are initially afraid of Miss Spider’s sinister-seeming web and numerous legs until they get to know her and her gentle spirit. The performance’s dances owe their leaps, twirls, and hokey pokeys to choreographer James Sewell, who also composed the score.
