To Herman, Charly and Annabella – Herman&CharlyVille IS the whole world, but they’re soon going to learn there is a lot more to see and learn out there in the really big world beyond Herman&CharlyVille. There’s lots to learn and some things to watch out for!
Charly & Annabella knew they were doing a really wonderful thing by touching every audience with their special heart given talents and their positive self-esteem messages. AND…when they did their dance routine together to ‘Spider Rag’ that was composed by their good friend…Mr. Whitney…Wheeew! What a show!
As Charly and Annabella kept performing both by themselves and together in the villages of Herman&CharlyVille, their FAN base became really big! I mean HUGE! But they are starting to get known outside of the villages of Herman&CharlyVille, and are rapidly becoming known worldwide (their books are now translated into 13 languages). And the story begins…
Herman’s momma told him, over and over…”Herman, you should have seen the size of your egg. Your father and I had such a hard time sitting on it to hatch it. We really had to work hard to keep our balance so we could keep it warm”.

Charly has a unique character, because he’s been a philosophizer all his life. It just came naturally to him. Others sought his advice because he seemed to know just what to say to make everything right. Charly McGee was born in Hawaii, an only spider, (his mother was Hawaiian and his father was Irish) [that’s where he inherited his singing voice]). When Charly was a tiny little spider; his parents were sitting together one night and Charly’s Mom said to Charly’s Dad, that their baby was very special and wanted the very best for him. She was thinking about moving off the island, and Charly’s dad said in his best brough; well then…why don’t we hop the next Tall Ship and let the winds take us to our destiny.

Annabella came from a rough part of town, being born to a very poor spider family, with at least 400 brothers and sisters. (It was really hard to remember all their names, but it was something that Annabella was great at.) She was determined to be different and make something of herself. Fortunately, she had a lovely voice, and after growing through the awkwardness of childhood and her teens, [with lots and lots of Practice…Practice…Practice] she blossomed into a VERY Beautiful young woman. She developed her exceptional talent in singing, dancing, acting, and playwriting…[and…as it turns out in the future…to be an exceptional MOM!]

Chris, Herman and Charly will travel to other places to explore different cultures and people. We want to expose the viewer/audience to the concept of a larger world and promote an interest in the diversity of cultures and traditions. Our characters will travel by going to the stage in the barn. There will be a plain backdrop, the curtains will close and then open and the backdrop on stage will be painted with the desired location. Our characters will then walk into the backdrop and arrive at that location. The return trip is back through the painted backdrop to the stage.
Our large community of characters lends itself to a wide variety of interactive possibilities leading to a virtually endless series of segment storylines to explore keeping the show fresh over time.
