A Theatre Hullabaloo production
One day, Bear’s life changes forever when, deep in the branches of a tree he hears the munching and a crunching of a bright green Caterpillar.
Bear and Caterpillar soon become the best of friends, Caterpillar munching happily through tales of Bear’s younger life catching fish, raising cubs and being big, strong and fierce.
But on day Caterpillar stops munching and looks sick. Bear cares for his friend and lays him on a pile of dry leaves, promising him that he’ll get better soon. Bear fears he will lose his friend but, as if by magic, Caterpillar grows and stretches and from the leaves emerges a beautiful butterfly.
Can Bear come to terms with this new version of his friend who flies high above the trees and has stories of his own?
Puppetry, live music and beautiful storytelling combine in this charming tale about love, loss and friendship
