Bayou Bug Tales  is a musical re-telling of the familiar fable of "The Ant and The Grasshopper" set in Louisiana Bayou country.  The music is upbeat and fun, plus there are some fun new characters like Bertram, the tadpole, and Clarissa, a caterpillar, who transform into a frog and a butterfly respectively as the seasons pass.  Bayou Bug Tales is about being prepared for the challenging times, but it's also about change and growth.  Like Tilly the Ant says, 'no use worrying about what you're gonna look like in the end, because whatever it is, you know it's what nature intended - and inside you are still the same.'  We can give away what actually happens to Horatio the Grasshopper in the story, but we can tell you there is a happy ending to the show.

Bayou Bug Tales'  book and lyrics were written by P. Haines-Ainsworth.  Music composed by Larry Bridges.  Additional music and musical arrangements by Terrence Alaric Levitt.  Characters voiced by:  Adrian Cerrato, Arwen Dewey, Danny Miller, Keiry Vida Valdez, and Pat Haines-Ainsworth.  This episode was recorded at Top of the Hill Studios in Duvall, WA (sound engineer, Steven Bell)
