The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favourites, UK tour 2011

Opening weekend went really well.  We performed for over 1800 children and parents in 2 days.  We started off a little bit nervous to be in a new country with the show, but the audiences were so supportive and energized that we calmed right down and shared our story with them.  In fact they know the story just as well as we do.  The Very Hungry Caterpillar seems to be a staple of British childhood.  We are mentioning our reason for being in the UK, and so many people respond with “Oh I love that story, it was my favourite growing up.”  We love Oxford and have been to many colleges and churches and a few watering holes.  We even heard a choir sing in the Cathedral of Christ Church, which is a memory we will all hold on to dearly.  Beautiful!
