This timeless classic story makes its way off the page and onto the local stage at Middlesbrough Theatre

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 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 production features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories: The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
