Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s acclaimed composite of storybook favorites will enjoy widespread touring in 2016-2017. First premiered in 2011, Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Other Treasured Stories by Eric Carle brings together old favorites and new friends. The hour-long production showcases the imaginative blend of innovative puppetry and striking scenic effects which have won international acclaim for the Nova Scotia-based theater. To date, some 400 performances have been applauded by close to 250,000 spectators across North America and Singapore.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar joins a whimsical menagerie drawn from the pages of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the story was written and illustrated by Carle and Bill Martin, Jr., and has served to introduce generations of youngsters to the delights of identifying colors and objects. The heartwarming father and daughter quest for an unusual plaything, Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me, offers a splendid introduction to the wonderment of the lunar cycle.
