The Storyville Mosquito is the story of a young mosquito who leaves his small town in the country to seek fame and fortune in the big city and fulfill his dream of playing in one of the greatest jazz bands of all time at Sid Villa’s Music Hall. Prepare to be mesmerized by the live, realtime performance of this animated graphic novel, where a skilled team of 14 performers breathes life into the story on both stage and screen simultaneously. Immerse yourself in the production’s intricate blend of miniature sets, live puppetry, captivating cinematography, and a live musical performance by Kid Koala and a string trio.

The Storyville Mosquito speaks to the themes of honesty, improvisation, inner voice, style, and collaboration. It is the follow-up to Kid Koala’s hugely successful ‘Nufonia Must Fall Live’ stage performance, further developing the emotion, the craft, the art and Kid’s skills as a composer, writer, and in this case, director.
