One of the most-read and famous children’s books of all time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar emerges off the page in a masterful theatrical experience for the whole family.

Journey through Eric Carle’s incredible stories as they come to life on stage in this enchanting show. Featuring some other delightful characters from three of Eric Carle’s bestselling classics tales including, The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse, Mr. Seahorse and The Very Lonely Firefly.

This Australian made show will excite, educate and entertain new readers and first-time theatre-goers, while for those who grew up with these books will delight in experiencing one of the most popular children’s books ever written.

***** “Beautiful, rhythmic and faithful to the author’s works, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a triumph for first time theatregoers.” Time Out

“This is a superbly realised vision of what might have been a very difficult adaptation and a work that honours its much-loved source text/s completely. Creator Jonathan Worsley and director Naomi Edwards have done a great job and it will no doubt find a huge audience across the world for many years to come. And deservedly so.” Daily Telegraph
