"One Sunday morning the warm sun cane up and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar."
Direct from Off-Broadway, four beloved classics — “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”, “Mister Seahorse”, “The Very Lonely Firefly”, and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” — leap off the page and on to the stage right in front of your eyes brought to life by a menagerie of 75 incredible puppets.
Coming soon: Parents can review our Parent Tip & Info page to help you know if your child is ready for the show.
