About the show

Author/illustrator Eric Carle's iconic children’s tale The Very Hungry Caterpillar returns to the London stage for a sensational family show this December. The critically-acclaimed adaptation by Jonathan Rockefeller will play a limited run over the Christmas season at the Ambassadors Theatre, providing a delightful seasonal treat for all the family.

Staying true to Carle’s unforgettable collage illustrations, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is brought to life by a magical menagerie of over 70 beautiful puppets. The performance includes faithful adaptations of Carle’s other fantastical stories including The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse and The Very Lonely Firefly.

First published in 1969, Carle’s enchanting tale went on to sell over 41 million copies, being selected for a variety of children's literature and a major graphic design awards. Jonathan Rockefeller’s spellbinding stage adaptation of the book debuted in Australia in 2015, going on to Off-Broadway in 2016 and London’s West End the same year. The show is set for an exciting UK tour in 2018.

The UK casts included an incredible team of storytelling puppeteers including Adam Ryan, Andrew Cullimore, Sarah Hamilton and Katie Haygarth, with puppetry direction by Eric Wright.

The show promises to be a captivating day out for the wee ones, perfect for 2 to 7 year olds. Don’t miss the chance to catch this enchanting family show at the Ambassadors Theatre starting on the 13th December 2017, running until the 7th January 2018.
