The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show

One of the most-read and famous children’s stories of all time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar emerges off the page in a masterful theatrical experience for children 18 months+ and their adults.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, this magical production features a menagerie of more than 75 puppets plus an Australian cast who bring 4 of Eric Carle's iconic stories to life on stage - Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Ten Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Busy Spider and of course, the star of the show - "and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar."

A delight for those just discovering Carle’s stories, and for the generations who grew up with his beloved books, this enchanting Australian-made show transports audiences into a pop-up-like version of Carle’s world that will excite, educate and entertain the whole family!
