THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR SHOW AVAILABLE TO WATCH AT HOME THIS HALF-TERM
As half-term draws near, Bristol Old Vic has teamed up with MEI and Rockefeller Productions to provide some heartwarming fun and entertainment to our littlest theatre-goers while we can't get out and about.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show (featuring Eric Carle's Dream Snow) is presented to a UK audience for the first time as a digital show to watch on demand. A theatrical recreation of Eric Carle's beautifully imaginative stories, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show has become a global sensation. Four master puppeteers weave their way through Eric Carle's stories, bringing to life a menagerie of 75 enchanting puppets in a magical show that faithfully recreates the colourful world of Carle's illustrations.
The show features four of Eric Carle's classic stories; Brown Bear, Brown Bear, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, the newly added Dream Snow and, of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This childhood favourite was filmed in front of a live audience in December 2020 and is now available to watch on demand, directly into your home.
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. Carle has illustrated more than seventy books, most of which he also wrote, and more than 169 million copies of his books have sold around the world.
Available to purchase as 3-day, 5-day or 7-day passes so you can watch as many times as your little ones would like at a time that suits you.

Bristol Old Vic is the longest continuously running theatre in the UK, and celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2016. The historic playhouse aims to inspire audiences with its own original productions, both at home and on tour, whilst nurturing the next generation of artists, whether that be through their 350-strong Young Company, their many outreach and education projects or their trailblazing artist development programme, Bristol Ferment.
They use their funding to support experiment and innovation, to allow access to their programme for people who would not otherwise encounter it, or be able to afford it, and to keep their extraordinary heritage alive and animated.
On 24 Sep 2018, Bristol Old Vic completed its 2-year multi-million pound redevelopment project, which transformed its front of house space into a warm and welcoming public building for all of Bristol to enjoy, created a new studio theatre and opened up its unique theatrical heritage to the public for the first time.
