Due to audience demand, that little caterpillar is returning, along with an assortment of enchanting puppet characters. Three beloved stories by Eric Carle, award-winning children’s book illustrator and author, are brought to life on stage through captivating puppets and charming storytelling by The Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.

“A quiet delight... brought to memorable life.” Los Angeles Times

Audiences of all ages are sure to fall in love with the whimsical and colorful retelling of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and its transformation into a beautiful butterfly. Then, join the mischievous Little Cloud who transforms itself into various imaginative shapes! Finally, embark on an adventurous trip to the zoo with The Mixed Up Chameleon as he tries to look like the beautiful animals, and eventually embraces his own uniqueness.

And remember to join us one hour before the show in the lobby for a fun activity for children!
