Eric Carle’s classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar comes to Richmond theatre this autumn.

As well as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the story of a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly, the children’s show includes Carle’s stories Little Cloud and The Mixed-Up Chameleon.

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 its eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly. 

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

In The Mixed-Up Chameleon, a little chameleon is bored with its life – sitting about predictably changing colour all day. So it decides to embark on an adventurous trip to the zoo, wishing it could be more like the other animals.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud and The Mixed-Up Chameleon, by award-winning children’s book illustrator and writer Carle, are beautifully told in this glowing stage adaptation with puppetry.
