If your family is like mine, there’s a tattered and well-loved copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar lying somewhere around your house. Ours sits atop a stack of books by Eric Carle, and we love them all: Brown Bear, Brown Bear; Have You Seen My Cat and Pancakes, Pancakes! are high on the list – but they just don’t quite compare to our favourite, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and his robust appetite for a smorgasboard of brightly-coloured, tantalizing foods!
The internationally-renowned Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia is bringing The Very Hungry Caterpillar to life on stage at the Arden Theatre in their captivating and innovative style! This performance marks the highly-anticipated return of Mermaid Theatre to the Arden, after their sold-out production of Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny in 2016. Don’t miss this unique and enchanting adaptation of three Eric Carle classics, offered in Mermaid Theatre’s signature blend of puppetry, scenery, music and storytelling that’s delighted audiences around the world.
