Three beloved stories by Eric
Carle, award-winning children’s book illustrator and author, are retold on
stage through the magic of black light and fanciful puppets.
Very Hungry Caterpillar
follows the wonderful adventures of a very
tiny and very hungry caterpillar as he eats his way through an amazing variety
of foods on his path to becoming a beautiful butterfly. High up in the
Little Cloud playfully transforms himself
into various creatures, including a sheep, and an airplane, a shark and
The Mixed-Up Chameleon is bored with his life,
sitting about predictably changing colour all day. Following an adventurous
trip to the zoo, he attempts to emulate the beautiful animals he sees before
coming to the conclusion that there is value in his own unique self.
Adapted, designed and directed by Jim
Morrow, with music by Steven Naylor and narration by Gordon Pinsent, the
hour-long production features the imaginative approach to storytelling through
theatre that has earned international recognition for Mermaid Theatre of Nova
