Now the timeless tale makes its way off the page and onto the stage. This critically acclaimed production features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories; The Artist Who Painted a Blue HorseMister SeahorseThe Very Lonely Firefly and of course The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
