Kids are going to love gobbling up the stories of Eric Carle at The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show. Carle’s beloved tale of an insatiable herbivore that munches its way to become a full-fledged butterfly takes wing in this charming new version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, not seen before in Chicago.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is a bright, bold spectacle that brings a menagerie of Eric Carle’s most colorful characters from the page to the stage. This production features 75 lovable puppets and faithful renditions of four Eric Carle favorites Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly, and the star of the show, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. After the performance, audiences get to meet the puppets and take pictures with the cast.
