Overview

Oh no! All the colors disappeared from the Pride Rainbow! Will you help us find them? Join nationally acclaimed kindie music band Ants on a Log for an interactive musical journey as we search for the colors of Pride. Along the way, we’ll encounter queer joy, self-expression, allyship, community, and our good friend Terry the Nonbinary Canary. Recommended for ages 4-11.

 

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.

About the Artist

Ants on a Log creates music for children and other childlike people, songfully advocating for positivity, social justice, and silliness. In their off-stage lives, Julie Be (they/them) and Miles Crabtree (he/him) are music therapists, and Anya Rose (she/her) is an elementary science teacher. Their powers combined make for smart and socially conscious folk, a delight for children and adults of all ages.


The Ants' musical "Curious: Think Outside the Pipeline!" is based on the true story of Philadelphia’s fight for clean air, and inspired by the youth-led climate change movement. In 2019 the “Curious” Soundtrack won a Parents’ Choice Award, and in 2021 the Ants released the puppet-powered "Curious" movie. In 2020, Julie Be produced the "Trans & Nonbinary Kids Mix," a compilation of songs from artists all over the gender map that gained national acclaim as a landmark album in the world of intersectional media for children. In 2023, the Ants released their third full-length album, Make it Myself, 14 songs of joy and justice, co-produced by Julie Be and Grammy-winning producer Dean Jones. The album includes the first song on national radio with exclusively nonbinary pronouns, as well as the only song (that we know of!) about the Environmental Protection Agency.


Since 2014, families have relied on Ants on a Log for their ongoing social justice soundtrack, full of harmony and humor.
