The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show heads to Theatre Royal Winchester

September 27, 2021

Four of Eric Carle’s timeless children’s classics have made their way off the page and onto the stage and head to Theatre Royal Winchester on Sunday 17 October in The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show.

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. 

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

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is a vibrant celebration of Eric Carle’s adored classics and the perfect introduction to live theatre.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Sunday 17 October at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 4pm. Tickets are available from theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call 01962 840 440.
