ACT 3 International presents The Very Hungry Caterpillar 2014

ACT 3 International, Singapore’s leading Arts company for the young is committed to presenting quality, stylish and innovative children’s theatre from around the world to young audiences and families in Singapore.

This year, it is pleased to present a returning favourite – The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Canada. This magical work of black light theatre brings together the beloved tales of award-winning children’s book illustrator and writer Eric Carle – The Very Hungry Caterpillar; Little Cloud and The Mixed Up Chameleon – and is suitable for 3 to 6 year olds.

Featuring stunning visual effects, innovative shadow puppetry and vibrant choral music, this triple bill will enthral children with its magical transformation of well-loved tales into a larger-than-life piece of theatre. Elaborates Ms Ruby-Lim Yang, Artistic Director of ACT 3 International: “We are always looking for different ways to ignite the child’s imagination. In Mermaid Theatre’s brilliant work, two-dimensional images are transformed into moving, dancing and speaking characters with personalities. This is theatre at its ingenious best.”

Three meaningful stories will be presented – The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the adventures of a tiny and hungry caterpillar and its eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly – what does it chomp along the way? Little Cloud is a charming little tale of how it decides to stray away from his fellow mates to go on an adventure that finds him turning into various objects such as a sheep, clown and even a shark! And finally, in The Mixed Up Chameleon, toddlers will be able to associate colours and meanings to objects through the reptile who eventually embraces his uniqueness after an identity calamity happens. Mermaid Theatre’s version mirrors the book’s stunning illustrations drawn in thick, brilliant brushstrokes of blues, greens and reds.
