The timeless classic has made its way off the page and onto the stage. Based on author/illustrator Eric Carle’s beloved book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the story of a caterpillar trying to satisfy his insatiable appetite, on his journey to becoming a full-fledged butterfly. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is a bright, bold spectacle, featuring 75 lovable puppets. In addition to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the production features the faithful adaption of three additional Eric Carle stories: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, and The Very Lonely Firefly.
