The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author/illustrator Eric Carle, has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969 selling more than 43 million copies worldwide. Now the timeless classic makes its way off the page and onto the stage.
Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colourful hand painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself.
Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories. The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Beautiful, rhythmic, and faithful to the author’s works
Bedazzling. This production will mesmerize audiences
Colourful, Engaging, Charming
Do yourself a favour. If The Very Hungry Caterpillar show is playing near you, see it. And take your favourite small person. They will be changed for the better.
