The Spider Queen Presented By Noma & The Nola Project says
The New Orleans Museum of Art and The NOLA Project invite you to experience a whole new world of adventure in THE SPIDER QUEEN, written by James Bartelle* and Alex Wallace*.

A rebellious teenager on a mission to discover the truth about her father’s death and a squeamish park ranger who just wants to maintain some order find themselves accidentally thrust into a hidden fantasy realm full of exotic creatures, nefarious villains and a giant spider who rules the land! Part The Lord of the Rings and part The Neverending Story, THE SPIDER QUEEN takes its cues from the adventure stories of our childhoods and will dazzle audiences with large-scale puppets, vivid masquerade and extravagant costuming. It will be unlike any garden show seen before!

Big Easy Award-winner Jon Greene directs a multi-talented cast featuring Jake Bartush, Hebert Benjamin, Graham Burk, Becca Chapman, Leslie L. Claverie*, Julie Dietz, Monica R. Harris, Levi Hood, Morrey McElroy, John Neisler, Kali Russell*, Chris Silva, Eli Timm and Anna Toujas.
