January 11, 2019 – – – – The Bonnyvyille and District Centennial Centre is pleased to announce an exciting family event – the Mermaid Theatre’s Hit Show ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other Eric Carle Favourites’ – at the Bonnyville C2 on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 7:00pm.
Mermaid Theatre’s compilation of five Eric Carle stories has generated remarkable statistics and earned considerable praise from audiences on several continents with over fifteen years of continuous touring and over two million spectators. Featuring innovative black-light puppetry and evocative original music, the production includes three beloved stories: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud and The Mixed-Up Chameleon.
The stories of Eric Carle, award-winning children’s book illustrator and author, are retold on stage through the magic of black light and fanciful puppets. The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the wonderful adventures of a very tiny and very hungry caterpillar as he eats his way through an amazing variety of foods on his path to becoming a beautiful butterfly. High up in the sky, Little Cloud playfully transforms himself into various creatures, including a sheep, and an airplane, a shark and more.The Mixed-Up Chameleon is bored with his life, sitting about predictably changing colour all day. Following an adventurous trip to the zoo, he attempts to emulate the beautiful animals he sees before coming to the conclusion that there is value in his own unique self.
Adapted, designed and directed by Jim Morrow, with music by Steven Naylor and narration by Gordon Pinsent, the hour-long production features the imaginative approach to storytelling through theatre that has earned international recognition for Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.
