THE ADVENTURES OF MIGHTY BUG Buzzes into Center for Puppetry Arts, Jan 31

Atlanta families will want to make a beeline for the upcoming production of The Adventures of Mighty Bug at Center for Puppetry Arts. From January 31 - March 17, the Center takes audiences on a trip to Bugville, a jumpin' little insect community that swings to the Bugville Boogie and the sweet sounds of WBUG Radio star Morpha Butterfly. Watching over the ants, fleas, crickets, water spiders, beetles and bees is the one and only Mighty Bug, a superhero with super strength, smelling, hearing and flying abilities. But the evil arachnid, Scorpiana, also has her eye on Bugville, and she has assembled a group to attack the crawling city. Filled with plenty of insect trivia and facts, this comic book style adventure story will give audiences the chance to be a fly on the wall as good battles evil and the future of Bugville hangs on the line.

Written and directed by the Center's Artistic Director, Jon Ludwig, The Adventures of Mighty Bug features a variety of puppetry styles including body puppetry, shadow puppetry and rod puppetry. Performing as the cast of interesting insects are puppetry veterans Dolph Amick, Allison Murphy, Spencer G. Stephens, Amy Sweeney and Tim Sweeney. Abuzz with fun and science, The Adventures of Mighty Bug provides an adventure story that's both educational and entertaining.

The Adventures of Mighty Bug is presented in the Mainstage Theater, January 31 - March 17, 2013. Show times are as follows:

· Tuesday - Friday: 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
