The Caterpillar and the Blackbird: The Happiest musical of the year!

“So great and my kids loved all the singing and dancing. The cow was so funny. Just so much to love.”


When a father has a difficult time encouraging his young daughter to eat her greens, he tells her the story of an unlikely friendship between a caterpillar and a blackbird:

A bored, strong-willed caterpillar refuses to eat her greens. Instead, she dreams of going on adventures and seeing the world.

After a chance encounter with a blackbird, the caterpillar’s dreams come true as the blackbird takes her on the journey of a lifetime.  Along the way, they will encounter a mixed assortment of animals, from a tap dancing cow, a sassy fox, a zen frog, and a prickly hedgehog - not to mention a troupe of mischievous squirrels watched over by a wise old owl. Each will teach the young caterpillar invaluable life lessons.

But the most important lesson of all for the young caterpillar is the value of true friendship as she and the blackbird form an unbreakable bond that will see the caterpillar through her wondrous metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly.
