Get your tix for “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” at the The Hanover Theatre on February 28!

Attention classic children’s book fans! See the cult classic “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” come to life at Hanover Theatre in February!

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” by author and illustrator Eric Carle, has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide. Carle’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colorful, hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world and to their first experience of reading.

The timeless classic has made its way off the page and onto the stage. Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories: “Brown Bear, Brown Bear,” “10 Little Rubber Ducks,” “The Very Lonely Firefly” and of course, the star of the show, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”
