Iconic children’s character The Very Hungry Caterpillar nibbles his way into the West End for a very festive season. Following a recent New York run, the stage adaptation of the beloved picture book wriggles into London’s Ambassador’s Theatre for a limited run beginning in December.

Based on Eric Carle’s famed book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the tasty tale of a greedy caterpillar who just wants to eat everything in sight! Selling over 41 million copies since its publication in 1969, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a legendary picture book that has been delighting children across generations. This show is set to feature three more of Carle’s popular stories, including The Artist Who Painted a Horse Blue, Mister Seahorse and The Very Lonely Firefly.

Directed by Jonathan Rockefeller, the stories will be brought to life with the use of over 75 magical, colourful puppets, in a nostalgic treat that will entertain children, parents and grandparents alike. The Very Hungry Caterpillar has also received a Drama Desk nomination, as well as winning the seal of approval from major celebrities and even Carle himself.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar plays at the Ambassadors Theatre from December 2nd 2016 to January 8th 2017. Don’t miss out on this delightful tale, which is sure to bring plenty of fun and laughter!
