The Eric Carle Story Show
Suggested Ages: All
Experience the spellbinding stories and colorful characters of author Eric Carle with three new stories on stage for the first time. Greet big and small friends in From Head to Toe; explore the world with The Very Quiet Cricket; play along mischievous shapes of Little Cloud; and help The Very Hungry Caterpillar on his timeless journey. All ages are welcome in an intimate storytelling setting with world-class puppeteers and 45 handcrafted, magical puppets.
The show is inclusive, designed to be autism friendly and open to children with sensory issues. Low sound levels that are never too loud; no abrupt/startling sound or light cues, house lights that remain at half-on throughout the performance, a firm “no shushing” policy, where nobody with sensory-processing issues is asked to quiet down during a performance and uiet areas in the theater lobby for any guests who need a break from the performance. Fidgets and social stories available, email CaterpillarNYC@rockefellerproductions.com.
Try to come without a stroller. There is limited space and strollers will be stored without supervision next to the Box Office.
