Eric Carle’s beloved The Very Hungry Caterpillar has delighted young readers all over the world, selling more than 43 million copies and being translated into over 40 languages, since it was first published in 1969.
Returning to Sydney following a successful 22-city national tour, this spectacular and colourful production takes audiences on a journey through a pop-up-like version of four of Carle’s stories – The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse and The Very Lonely Firefly – brought to life with a menagerie of 75 loveable puppets.
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 will excite, educate and entertain the whole family.
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.”
