In our home, Eric Carle is THE most requested author for bedtime real-alouds. Even our 3 year old Buddy would randomly pick up Eric Carle’s books in his free time and mimic reading, much to our amusement. He also could remember the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by heart. So it is with great anticipation and excitement when we knew that ACT 3 International is bringing the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Canada to Singapore again to present ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favourites’ from October 6 to 15, 2017.
Four tales will be showcased: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud and The Mixed Up Chameleon. Kids would be able to get up close and personal with these endearing characters against a black-lighted background as they come to life in a unique form of storytelling through theatre. Now on its 4th visit to Singapore, Mermaid Theatre’s unique adaptations of Children’s literature have touched the hearts of more than 3 million young people across the world.
Its emphasis on original design elements, original music and interesting tales provides a rich opportunity to acquaint young audiences with the visual and performing arts as well as the pleasures of reading. We’ve watched the Mermaid Theatre’s performance few years ago with Dana and were absolutely mesmerized even as adults. So book your tickets now and let your children experience the glory of Eric Carle. Show duration is 60 mins and recommended for kids 3 to 6 years old.
