About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, Taunton

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author/illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969 selling more than 43 million copies worldwide.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colourful hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself.

The timeless classic has made its way off the page and onto the stage.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories, Brown Bear, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course, the star of the show celebrating its 50th Birthday in 2019 The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The show is aimed at ages 1+ but is fine for younger children as well. No pyrotechnics or strobe lighting will be featured in the show and any effects will be young child friendly.

Children over 12 months old on the day of the show will require a ticket and will need to have their own seat.  Contact the venue about ‘Babe in Arms’ tickets for children under 12 months and ticket discounts for school groups.

Show duration 1 hour.
