What’s All the Buzz? Bay Area Children’s Theatre Debuts Fly Guy, the Musical

Sat, 04/08/2017

An insect for a pet? Flies are pests, not pets, right? Well, young Buzz and his new friend, Liz, know otherwise, and their adventures with their zippy, winged companions have the whole town, umm, buzzing!
Bay Area Children’s Theatre (BACT) opens its world premiere production of Fly Guy, the Musical, Saturday, April 8, at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, 2020 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA 94703, where it will play weekends at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. through Sunday, May 7. The production then moves to San Ramon and San Francisco.

Inspired by the popular Fly Guy books by author and illustrator Tedd Arnold, this rollicking new musical will have families cheering for Fly Guy and his pal, Fly Girl, and delighting in their antics, as their caring friendships help them overcome all the challenges they face.

Fly Guy, the Musical, is conceived and directed by BACT’s Nina Meehan and features book, music and lyrics by Oakland-based playwright and composer Austin Zumbro, whose award-winning work for BACT includes Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site—The Musical and The Day the Crayons Quit—the Musical. The show, a co-commission with Oregon Children’s Theatre, is recommended for age 4 and up.
