In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, we just wanted to mention: we love the Very Hungry Caterpillar! 🐛❤️ (We’ve been subtle about it, right?!)
Finally, after months of waiting, the joyous day came yesterday when we got to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar show at Middlesbrough Theatre. Two very excited Lasses we were! 😍 But before that, a little recap…
First there was the video…
Spot the Love Middlesbrough Lasses!
Then there was the behind the scenes blog post!
And now, the Love Middlesbrough Lasses finally got to see their hero in the flesh (well, fuzz)!
Can you believe our luck? We found a lolly which looked just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar!
The show itself was just magical – as engaging for adults as it was for children, and it brought the stories to life in a way which made it look like the characters really had just leapt off the page. It didn’t matter whether you knew the stories or not, they were still easy to follow and totally enchanting.
Of course, the highlight of the show was the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and from the second he popped out of his egg to the moment when the last glimpse of the beautiful butterfly’s wings disappeared, the audience was completely enthralled.
The puppeteers had absolutely limitless energy, and I can’t deny that I had all the feels when every child in the theatre joined in shouting ‘but he was still hungry!’
As someone who’s seen a lot of good theatre, I can definitely say this is one of the best shows I’ve seen, and not only that but it’s a genuine West-End quality show which you can see right here from the comfort of your own town. Thank you Middlesbrough Theatre!
So was the show worth waiting six months for? Absolutely! Now how soon can we see it again?? ❤️🐛❤️
