The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show

One of the most-read and famous children's books of all time, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar,' emerges off the page in a masterful theatrical experience for the whole family.

Based on author Eric Carle's incredible stories, the show features a menagerie of seventy five enchanting puppets that faithfully adapts four of Eric Carle's beloved books for the stage including; The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

"I hope the colourful characters will bring comfort and joy to all who see the show and that my books and this show will inspire you and your imagination." Eric Carle.

The acclaimed creator of brilliantly illustrated picture books for very young children, Eric Carle has illustrated more than seventy books, many best sellers. More than 127 million copies of his books have sold around the world. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, now-classic and the favourite of millions of readers has been translated into sixty languages and sold over 38 million copies since it was first published in 1969.

Journey into the world of Eric Carle, audiences are transported into a giant pop-up book filled with amazing characters from an 8ft red crocodile, a life size yellow cow, an under-water world filled with all types of sea creatures to a beautiful butterfly and the hero of the show The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Created by Jonathan Rockefeller and directed by Naomi Edwards, this Australian made show will excite, educate and entertain new readers and first-time theatre-goers.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is playing at BREC on Thursday 13 April at 11am, 2pm & 5.30pm. Tickets are now on sale and available from or by calling 1300 661 272.
