Best Bits

Inspired by this classic children’s storybook The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Circusy Caterpillar is a little cheekier, a lot more peckish and much more circusy! 

This fun and interactive show sees our ravenous friend take to the stage to juggle plums, hula-hoop fruit and tell a few silly stories that will have your little ones in fits of giggles. It’s the perfect show for your child’s first experience of live performance and is sure to induce a little nostalgia for the adults.

  •  The premiere season for The Very Circusy Caterpillar in the UK
  • Named one of the best circus shows for children currently on the Australian circuit. 
  • Sure to entertain and delight!

'Many circus shows aimed at very young children often feature performances that, to a jaded reviewer, aren’t actually that impressive but this is a showcase of several routines that could be transplanted into any high-quality evening show. If you have little ones then you should definitely take them to this show. If you don’t have any children, then you should go see this show anyway; you’ll have a great time and you might even see a butterfly.' - Broadway Baby

'"I couldn't do that" gasps one four-year-old, as his jaw drops, eyes wide. But the best trick is the flying finale, from the beautiful butterfly. Young children were mesmerised and adults entertained by the cute and cuddly critter, born to perform and transform in a marvel of metamorphosis.' - Adelaide Advertiser
