Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia makes a triumphant return to Midland Center for the Arts with the stories The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud and The Mixed-up Chameleon by award-winning children’s book illustrator and writer Eric Carle, all retold on stage in black light.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the wonderful adventures of a very tiny and very hungry caterpillar that progresses through an amazing variety of foods towards his eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly.

Children will delight in the antics of Little Cloud. High up in a beautiful sky, Little Cloud slips away from the rest and transforms itself into various shapes of things it sees: a sheep, and airplane, a shark and more.

In The Mixed-Up Chameleon, a little chameleon is bored with its life sitting about predictably changing color all day. So it decides to embark on an adventurous trip to the zoo. Upon seeing the beautiful animals there, the little chameleon tries changing to look like each one of them.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites, adapted, directed and designed by Jim Morrow, music by Steven Naylor, and narrated by Gordon Pinsent.

“ . . . I am a great fan of The Mermaid Theatre and have been captivated by the beauty and magic of their black light productions every time I’ve seen them perform”
– Author Eric Carle
