Eric Carle’s stories become puppet sensations exploring counting and colors. The very hungry and very tiny caterpillar munches through a smorgasbord of things, emerging as a big, beautiful butterfly. Whimsical music and imaginative puppetry engage the senses and enchant all ages. Mermaid Theatre’s magical interpretation comes to us from their wildly popular international tour.
