Bea & The Bug Happenings for 2002!
Despite sticky Washington weather on July 10th, hundreds of kids
piled into Carter Barron Amphitheater to see The Education & Entertainment
Foundation's The Bea & The Bug Extravaganza For Children! Everyone
had a wonderful time! The morning show brought kids from daycare centers, nursery
schools, camps, and other summer programs. Many children enjoyed the show so much
that they brought their parents to the show that evening.
In this year's show, Morgan decides that she wants to write stories just for fun.
She does so with a pen and pad and the help of her friends, Trevor,
BungleBug®, HoneyBea®, Wise Old DragonFly®, and the entire audience.
They all meet historical figures including Ms. Nellie Bly, Mr. Benjamin Banneker,
and Mr. Lewis and Mr. Clark. Also in the performance were the Gnats who opened
the show with the BungeBug Band in a music hall fashion.
The fast-paced musical show was directed and choreographed by Ms. Elena Velasco
with music direction by Ms. Barbara Schelstrate. It was the premier performance
of this exciting new script written by Mr. Duncan Hood and Mr. Matthew Johnson.
The performance was funny, entertaining, and witty for the children
and the adults in the audience.

entire audience joined in! Ziganinny!
