3. What is The Busy Little Bee about?

Elephant Ensemble Theater’s main 2010 tour is called The Busy Little Bee, a 30-minute educational, audience participatory comedy, written by Liza Lentini.

The Busy Little Bee tells the story of a lazy young worker bee who is forced to venture out of her hive to pollinate a flower.

Through the little bee’s journey, children learn the importance of honey bees for the environment, and interesting facts about her fellow insect friends, who also teach her simple words and phrases in 5 languages.

The Busy Little Bee emphasizes the importance of work ethic, good friends, and how small efforts make a big difference in the world at large.
