Secret Life of BugsNorthwest Puppet Center, 9123 15th Ave. N.E., presents “The Secret Life of Bugs” weekends through May 12.

Step through a magnifying glass into the miniature world of insects. With mesmerizing blacklight puppetry, witness the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Along the way, spiders, dung beetles and dragonflies engage in daily activities such as orb weaving, nesting, and hunting. An exotic soundtrack provides the thread connecting different species in the web of life. This entertaining and educational performance has been developed with assistance from expert entomologist Erin Sullivan of Woodland Park Zoo.

Curtain is at 1 and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets cost $10.50/$8.50 child (up to 16)/$9 Senior (65+) and are available at the box office 30 minutes before curtain, by calling 1-800-838-3006 or at Brown Paper Tickets.
