The Little Caterpillar with the enormous appetite returns to Brooklyn! Back by popular demand, this triple-bill includes the wonderful story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar's metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly, the fanciful account of Little Cloud's travels through the sky, and The Mixed-Up Chameleon's discovery of his unique nature. Mermaid Theatre draws upon the magic of black light to capture the whimsical charm of Eric Carle's classic stories.
Venue Description: Founded in 1954, Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College presents outstanding performing arts and arts education programs, reflective of Brooklyn's diverse communities, at affordable prices. Each season, Brooklyn Center welcomes over 65,000 people to the 2,400 seat Walt Whitman Theatre, including up to 45,000 schoolchildren from over 300 schools who attend their SchoolTime series, one of the largest arts-in-education programs in the borough.
