Three beloved stories by Eric Carle, award-winning children’s book illustrator and author, are retold on stage through the magic of black light and fanciful puppets.

THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR follows the wonderful adventures of a very tiny and very hungry caterpillar as he eats his way through an amazing variety of foods on his path to becoming a beautiful butterfly. High up in the sky, LITTLE CLOUD playfully transforms himself into various creatures, including a sheep, an airplane, a shark and more. THE MIXED-UP CHAMELEON is bored with his life, sitting about predictably changing colour all day. Following an adventurous trip to the zoo, he attempts to emulate the beautiful animals he sees before coming to the conclusion that there is value in his own unique self.

Adapted, designed and directed by Jim Morrow, with music by Steven Naylor and narration by Gordon Pinsent, the hour-long production features the imaginative approach to storytelling through theatre that has earned international recognition for Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.

This performance is 60 minutes long with no intermission and recommended for ages 3-8 years.

The Imagination Series is made possible thanks to the support of Pilot Flying J.
