A perennial favorite returns to the State Theatre! Mermaid Theatre’s magical production presents three of Eric Carle’s storybook tales, adapted for the stage with brilliant black-light puppetry, fanciful music, and the author’s original text. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a counting story that depicts a caterpillar’s progress through a variety of foods and his eventual metamorphosis into a butterfly. In Little Cloud, the title character changes into the shapes of things he sees before rejoining his cloud family to make a rainstorm. The Mixed-Up Chameleon teaches children the importance of being true to oneself.
