The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show returns to Australia ahead of a 22-city national tour with three performances at The Concourse, Chatswood on June 21.

One of the most iconic children’s stories of all time, Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar has sold over 41 million copies and now emerges from the page in a joyous and masterful theatrical experience, created by Jonathan Rockefeller.

Brought to life with a menagerie of 75 loveable puppets, this critically-acclaimed production faithfully adapts four of Carle’s stories: The Artist Who Painted a Blue HorseMister SeahorseThe Very Lonely Firefly and of course, the star of the show – The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

A delight for those just discovering Carle’s stories, and for the generations who grew up with his iconic books, this enchanting Australian-made show transports audiences into a pop-up-like version of Carle’s world that will excite, educate and entertain the whole family.
