Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
Based on the books written by Eric Carle
Sometimes the heroes are the storytellers. Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, well known for its beautiful portrayal of beloved children's books, brings its expertise to the colorful tales of Eric Carle. Old favorites join together with new friends in three of Carle's most treasured tales. The classic picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar is joined by a 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 request, Papa, please get the moon for me, completes this can't-miss puppet performance celebrating the work of one of the great writers and illustrators of children's books. For age 3 and up.
