Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!"
