Welcome Teachers, Educators, and Parents: We are so excited that you’re here for our 2013-2014 season,
Imagine That 
. It’s a season lled with
unlikely friendships, travels to space, uproarious pantomime, black light puppetry, fairy tales of epic proportions, and much more. The Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia has captivated audiences around the world with its playful yet loyal adaptations of children’s literature, striving in every production to develop literacy and strengthen an appreciation for reading.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites 
 has been on tour continuously since 1999. The innovative black light technique hides puppeteers from view, bringing Eric Carle’s classic characters to life and enchanting audiences. We are delighted to invite you into the colorful world of Eric Carle whose belief that “one must not stay within the lines” echoes in all his enduring characters. As you know, research has shown that the early years in a child’s life—when the human brain is forming—represent a critically important window of opportunity to develop a child’s full potential and shape key academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine a child’s success in school and in life. The arts are a crucial tool for teaching empathy, expanding imagination and introducing ideas that challenge our thinking.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites 
, as with all the plays on our stage this season, is a product of the imagination and hard work of every actor, director, playwright, and artist at CTC. We hope you, your students, and your family will be transported to the worlds we have created. We hope our plays spark dialogue between friends, classmates and family members and that everyone shares in the power of active imagination. See you at the theatre!Warmly,
 Nina Stultz
