ACT 3 International presents The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Canada

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 morphing 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 crisis happens. Mermaid Theatre’s version mirrors the book’s stunning illustrations drawn in thick, brilliant brushstrokes of blues, greens and reds.
