The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show


The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author/illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers it was first published in 1969 selling more than 41 million copies worldwide.

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.

Now, the timeless classic makes it way off the page and onto the stage in this critically acclaimed production featuring a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle stories; The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly, and of course, the star of the show – The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

“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”
