Three beloved stories from award-winning author/illustrator Eric Carle are brought to life onstage in this mesmerizing display of puppetry, light and music from the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia. Follow the Very Hungry Caterpillar as he munches his way through strawberries, chocolate cake and other foods before his colorful metamorphosis. High up in the sky, watch Little Cloud transform himself into various creatures, including a sheep, an airplane and a shark. And see the Mixed-Up Chameleon foregoing his predictable life in favor of an exciting trip to the zoo.

Under black light, these extravagant handmade puppets evoke a kaleidoscopic ballet of color and movement, backed by the warm narration of Gordon Pinsent. The hour-long production is a charming and whimsical treat for kids and adults.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and military, and $9 for students and youth. For tickets, call 814-824-3000 or visit
