This production is great for all families, especially for children with an autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivity, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgment-free environment where all patrons are free to vocalize or move around the theatre. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to vocal reactions, movement, or behaviors related to cognitive/developmental abilities.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s elegant stage adaptation of Eric Carle’s beloved work has made theatre history, both in Nova Scotia and throughout North America. With its objective of introducing very little children to their first performing arts experience, the production has served as well to encourage literacy and the love of reading, and has acquainted thousands of young people and their parents with Nova Scotia and its talented artists. THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR & OTHER ERIC CARLE FAVOURITES includes the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillars metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly; the fanciful account of Little Clouds travels through the sky; and the Mixed-Up Chameleon’s discovery of his own unique nature. Directed and designed by Jim Morrow, who ranks among Canada’s most esteemed puppetry creators, the triple-bill show incorporates evocative original music by Nova Scotian composer Steven Naylor, and innovative “black light” staging techniques which highlight Morrow’s stunning puppets and props. The work follows closely the books from which they are adapted, providing a new generation with a seamless entry into the world of theatre and music.
