Ambassadors Theatre, West Street, London, WC2H 9ND

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show will receive its West End debut at the Ambassadors Theatre.

One of the most iconic characters in children’s literature will make his West End debut this Christmas, when The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show opens for a limited 5-week season at the Ambassadors.

Eric Carle’s books have captivated generations of readers with their iconic hand-painted illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing millions of children to a bigger, brighter world, and to their first experience of reading itself.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show’ features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle stories, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course, the star of the show – The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show runs from 2 December 2016 until 8 January 2017 at the Ambassadors Theatre.
