Act 3 International presents The Very Hungry Caterpillar


For 4- to 8-year-olds.
12 - 20 Aug 2006
For a limited time, from August 12 ¨C 20, everyone¡¯s favourite caterpillar will be crawling back into the hearts of children everywhere!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other Eric Carle Favourites will be recreated on stage at the Jubilee Hall and expect to be mesmerized by the theatrical magic of beautiful large puppets in a unique black light presentation.
The Narration
The story follows the wonderful adventures of a teeny but famished caterpillar who after satisfying his insatiable appetite, is transformed into a beautiful butterfly.
Expect coos of delight from both children and adults as the caterpillar hatches from its egg and appears in his round, red face and pliable, multi-legged body.
This narration will also be accompanied by the delightful antics of Little Cloud and its inquisitive journey through the sky where it replicates the different shapes of things that it sees such as a plane, a sheep, a hat and a clown.
Last but not least, in the tale of The Mixed-Up Chameleon, a bored Chameleon decides to embark on an adventure to the zoo where it eventually discovers its own unique nature amongst the various exotic animals there.
Entertainment and Education
The simple and visually appealing art of Eric Carle transcends seamlessly from book to stage and provides an engaging and enriching time for preschoolers.
Ruby Lim-Yang, artistic director of ACT 3 International believes children¡¯s puppetry theatre of such calibre is truly exceptional and is extremely pleased to be able to present such a distinct presentation. She says, ¡°The puppets are not only entertaining but are also edifying and stimulating to all the senses.¡±
She further adds that ¡°the stunning presentation of Eric Carle¡¯s stories illustrates the magical transformation of familiar children stories into a visually pleasing stage performance and as such it also allows for the children to widen their imagination in every way possible.¡±
