The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud and The Mixed-up Chameleon, by award-winning children’s book illustrator and writer, Eric Carle, are brilliantly retold on stage in black light in this visually stunning performance.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the wonderful adventures of an extremely tiny but very hungry caterpillar who munches his way through an amazing variety of foods as he approaches his eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly.

Children will delight in the antics of Little Cloud. High up in a beautiful sky, Little Cloud slips away and transforms into the shapes of various things it sees: a sheep, and airplane, a shark, and more.

In The Mixed-Up Chameleon, a little chameleon is bored with spending its life sitting about predictably changing color all day. So it decides to embark on an adventurous trip to the zoo. Upon seeing the beautiful animals there, the little chameleon tries changing to look like each one. Ages 3+


“Carle’s engaging stories are impeccably narrated. Jim Morrow and his team deserve ten out ten for the authenticity of a show which uses ultraviolet light and stick or rod handle puppets to capture Eric Carle’s bright colors and simplicity.” The Stage
