The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show

‘In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.’

So many of our journeys into the magical world of reading began with the works of Eric Carle. Books like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Ten Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly, and, of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar have sparked imagination and joy in generations of young readers.

This stage show captures that same magic of these four books (two new titles and two returning favorites) with the help of a menagerie of beautifully-crafted, larger-than-life puppets. Colorful and kinetic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show captures all the charm of Carle's original tales and illustrations, while conveying simple messages about the value of creativity, belonging, and growth.

“...an absolutely perfect introduction to live theater for the littlest children (while also featuring enough breathtaking moments to engage seasoned theatergoers).”—NW Kids Magazine
