"and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar."

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 children 18 months+ and their teachers. Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the production features a menagerie of over 75 magical puppets to bring Eric Carle's stories to life on stage.

Alongside The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the show features three other Eric Carle stories, including Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? 

The team behind the Australian tours of The Gruffalo, Spot, and The 13, 26, 52, 78 & 91-Storey Treehouses will excite, educate and entertain new readers and first-time theatre-goers, while those who grew up with these books will delight in experiencing one of the most popular children's books ever written.

Included on the NSW Board of Studies suggested reading list, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great way to introduce Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 students to insect life cycles. The live stage play will allow your students to experience storytelling through drama and puppetry.
