So many of our journeys into the magical world of reading began with the works of Eric Carle. Books like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Ten Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly, and, of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar have sparked imagination and joy in generations of young readers. This stage show captures that same magic of these four books (two new titles and two returning favorites) with the help of a menagerie of beautifully-crafted, larger-than-life puppets. Colorful and kinetic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show captures all the charm of Carle’s original tales and illustrations, while conveying simple messages about the value of creativity, belonging, and growth.

***Canceled*** The Moors by Jen Silverman - The Theatre Company @ TaborSpace | Portland | Oregon | United States

Sisters Agatha and Huldey reside on the bleak English Moors. Their Mastiff has a bad case of ennui, the maid has multiple personalities, the crash-landed Moor-Hen can’t remember a thing, a young governess has just arrived from London, and Master Branwell is nowhere to be found. This bold satire is a wild ride through the beautiful and the dangerous (in a Grey Gardens meets American Horror Story meets Calvin & Hobbes kind of way).
