You can’t get a better story than an Eric Carle one for the little people! This show looks so cool too!
NOM NOM NOM…THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR MAKES ITS FIRST EVER VISIT TO NEW ZEALAND!
For the first time in New Zealand, the celebrated theatrical production The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show will burst into life onstage from the 18 – 22 July 2017 at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna, as a part of the Auckland Live Kids Play programme.
One of the most read and famous children’s books of all time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle emerges from the page in a masterful and beautiful dramatic experience for the whole family. A nostalgic and truly cherished childhood tale. The Very Hungry Caterpillar will be performed alongside other Eric Carle best-sellers The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mr. Seahorse and The Very Lonely Firefly.
Having toured Australia with sell-out seasons, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show and its 70 puppets is set to capture the imaginations of new fans with its visual wizardry. While those who grew up with Carle’s books will relish the chance to see the enchanting stories unfold live on stage.
A timeless classic for all generations, there are 10 performances of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show perfectly timed for July school holiday fun!
“For first-time theatregoers, this is a triumph of faithful storytelling and pattern recognition. For seasoned viewers. It’s a production that’s beautiful to watch – no matter how old you are, or how long ago it was since you read a picture book” – Time Out, Australia
