By the company that brought you the sold out run of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s new production, A Brown Bear, A Caterpillar And A Moon: Treasured Stories By Eric Carle, will bring together old favorites and new friends. Featuring evocative music, stunning visual effects and innovative puppetry, the triple-bill highlights three of Eric Carle’s most beloved tales.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar (veteran of more than 2000 performances), is joined by a whimsical cast of adventurous animals drawn from the pages of Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? The poignant story of a young girl’s unusual quest, Papa Please Get The Moon For Me, completes an hour-long performance, which both entertains and educates.

“A quiet delight… brought to memorable life.” – Los Angeles Times
