Nova Scotia’s Mermaid Theatre, one of North America’s premier touring puppetry companies, uses stunning music, spectacular black light visual effects and innovative puppetry to bring together old favorites and new friends from three of Eric Carle’s famous stories. In this composite of storybook favorites, The Very Hungry Caterpillar joins a whimsical menagerie drawn from the pages of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? The heartwarming father-and-daughter quest for an unusual plaything, Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me, completes a fanciful hour-long production that is “mesmerizing,” “vivid” and “uniquely told” (The New York Times).
“Even kids unfamiliar with Carle’s canon remain rapt, thanks in large part to the dramatic lighting, those glowing sets and the handiwork of (just) two puppeteers.” –Time Out Chicago
