Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s acclaimed composite of storybook favorites comes to The Gorton Center. The show is a live staging of three of Eric Carle's standards, and is shot entirely in black light. The hour-long production showcases the imaginative blend of innovative puppetry and striking scenic effects that has won international acclaim for the Nova Scotia-based theatre.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar joins a whimsical menagerie drawn from the pages of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, the story was written and illustrated by Carle and Bill Martin, Jr., and has served to introduce generations of toddlers to the delights of identifying colours and objects.

Shows are at 10AM and 2PM; tickets are $15 each. Refer to website to purchase tickets and for more information.
