The Very Hungry Caterpillar celebrates 50 years


The timeless tale of the Very Hungry Caterpillar will be celebrating its 50 anniversary year by delighting audiences at Parr Hall.

The story, written by author and illustrator Eric Carle, has charmed generations of readers since it was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colourful hand-painted tissue paper illustrations and distinctively simple stories.

As a result, generations of children were introduced to a bigger, brighter world, and to their first experience of reading itself.

Now the 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 in a faithful adaptation of 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.

Tickets for the show, on Sunday July 21, are on sale now; call Box Office on 01925 442345 or visit parrhall.culturewarrington.org
