REVIEWS

“Beautiful, rhythmic and faithful to the author’s work, the very hungry Caterpillar is a triumph for first time theatregoers” Time Out Sydney 

“…The Sydney Festival Parramatta  production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a knockout success.”

Daily Telegraph

“This is a superbly realised vision of what might have been a very difficult adaptation and a work that honours its much-loved source text/s completely. Creator Jonathan Worsley and director Naomi Edwards have done a great job and it will no doubt find a huge audience across the world for many years to come. And deservedly so.” Daily Telegraph

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is a gorgeous little stage production for children aged one to seven that captivates with its clear storytelling, its fresh, bright design and its simple but inventive staging.” Jo Liston
