Children’s literature on stage

Families will soon plunge into the wonderful world of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, an exciting experience that will finally visit us, conquering new readers and enchanting first-time theatre goers.

In a moonlit evening, a tiny egg lies on a leaf. Next morning, when the sun rises, a little caterpillar climbs from its eggshell, and soon starts looking for food, so the adventure begins…

Based on arguably the most read and popular children’s book series of all time, this masterful play brings to life Eric Carle’s incredible stories, introducing us to a parade of delightful puppets. The well-known American illustrator has used a tissue-paper collage technique to create his signature brightly coloured pictures, mostly of children and animals, inspired on his childhood memories in nature, published in lovely stories for more than 50 years.

Leaping from the book pages onto the stage, this Shanghai production originally created by Jonathan Rockefeller will unveil a few other bestselling classic stories by Carle, from Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, to 10 Little Rubber Ducks and the Very Lonely Firefly. All these little friends will be joining The Very Hungry Caterpillar, an unforgettable theatrical adventure for children over two years old. Our kids simply can’t miss this much fun!
