Second Showing: 3:00pm

This critically acclaimed production created by Jonathan Rockefeller features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets faithfully adapted from four stories by author/illustrator Eric Carle: BrownBear, Brown Bear; 10 Little Rubber Ducks; The Very Lonely Firefly; and, of course, the star of the show –The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide. Brown Bear, Brown Bear - now celebrating 50 years - has sold more than 16 million copies.

Eric's well-known books have captivated readers with his iconic, colorful, hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world and to their first experience of reading. The timeless classic has now made its way off the page and onto the stage.
