Mermaid Theatre has performed for more than four million spectators on four continents. Locally, Chicago Children's Theatre last hosted Mermaid Theatre's smash hit, nearly sold-out run of The Very Hungry Caterpillar at the Field Museum in 2010. Mermaid's emphasis on imaginative design elements, original music, and challenging texts syncs right up with Chicago Children's Theatre's aesthetic. So what better way to acquaint young audiences with the visual and performing arts as well as the pleasures of reading than a school or family trip to enjoy the wonder of A Brown Bear, A Moon and A Caterpillar: Treasured Stories by Eric Carle.
