One of the most iconic children’s stories of all time, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar has sold over 45 million copies and now emerges from the page in a joyous and masterful theatrical experience, created by Jonathan Rockefeller.
Brought to life with a menagerie of 75 loveable puppets, this critically- acclaimed production faithfully adapts four of Carle’s stories, including Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and of course, the star of the show – The Very Hungry Caterpillar.,br>
A delight for those just discovering Carle’s stories, and for the generations who grew up with his iconic books, this enchanting Australian-made show transports audiences into a pop-up-like version of Carle’s world that will excite, educate and entertain the whole family.
Eric Carle said of the show, “I hope the performances will be enjoyed by many and that the colourful characters bring comfort and joy to all who see the stories… it is uplifting to see such beautiful and cheerful works inspired by my characters! I hope my books - and this show - will inspire you and your imagination.”
