Perfect show for the very youngest audience members…and their parents will probably enjoy it too!

Treasured Stories by Eric Carle
Friday, January 13, 7 p.m.
Tickets also available at the door

Treasured Stories by Eric Carle features three beloved Eric Carle stories presented by the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia: 

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me
  • Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? 

Mermaid Theatre creates scenic elements and non-traditional puppets that closely duplicate the artwork of Mr. Carle that is so beloved and so recognizable to young children and their parents. The show is less than an hour in length and includes a post-show sneak-peek at the magic of some of the puppetry elements. 

We are pleased to have some outstanding organizations in the community presenting pre-show activities in the lobby from 6 to 7 p.m.  Come early to participate in the fun! 

  • The Music Factory – Teaching staff from The Music Factory will bring rhythm instruments for participating children to enjoy.
  • LLCC Community Learning –Youth Coordinator Jessica Ingold always brings an exciting craft or interactive activity to the UIS Family Series events.
  • Springfield Art Association – Education Coordinator Erin Svendsen will host an art project for participants.
  • Dr. John Martin – Building on themes from “Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me”, UIS Astronomer Dr. John Martin will share some night sky information with interested kids and families in the lobby.
Hope you can join us!
