Brown Bear, Brown Bear and other Treasured Stories by Eric Carle
Part of the Kids Series!
"…The sweet-as-can-be doses of narrated fantasy — made more so by a whimsical score — continue with adaptations of two more widely read Carle works. The puppet-driven 'animation' of the little ursine protagonist (from Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?) and of Monica and her Papa (from Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me) teases out more laughs from the audience as the characters lumber or mosey across stage. Even kids unfamiliar with Carle’s canon remain rapt, thanks in large part to the dramatic lighting, those glowing sets and the handiwork of (just) two puppeteers."
– Tim McCormick, Time Out Chicago
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, a perennial WAC favorite, returns with a triple-bill production highlighting three of Eric Carle’s most beloved tales – bringing together old favorites and new friends with whimsical music and striking scenic effects. The Very Hungry Caterpillar joins the menagerie of animals drawn from the pages of Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? These two classic tales are followed by Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me, the heartwarming story of a young girl’s unusual quest. Performed with black light effects, puppetry, live animation, projected images and object movement, this imaginative performance is perfect for introducing your children to the magic of live theater!
Best for ages 5+
