FAQ

  • What is the running time?

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show runs for 50 minutes with no intermission.

  • Can I bring a stroller?

    There is limited space in the venue and strollers will be stored without supervision next to the Box Office.

    If it’s possible for you and your family, we strongly recommend leaving your stroller at home.

  • Can I take pictures?  What is your photography policy?

    No photography is permitted during the show – it is distracting to performers and discourteous to other audience members. Puppets will come back on stage after the show (with better lighting) for photo opportunities. For a special post-show photo with the Hungry Caterpillar, patrons should purchase VIP or Premium tickets.

  • Is my child too young for this show?

    Our audience members range from 6 months to 96 years old. We recommend the show for all ages! And we never encourage children to be quiet – our only request is that their accompanying adults leave phones turned off until after the show!

  • Can my child sit on my lap?

    Lap seats are available for children under one which are purchased at the door for $5.

    If your child is over one you are still very welcome to seat them in your lap but a full ticket will need to be purchased.

  • I have a group.  How can i book?

    Groups of 8 or more are eligible for a special group discount. For details on pricing, email groups@hungrycaterpillarshow.com.

    We also accommodate school groups and large groups of 50+. Email us at groups@hungrycaterpillarshow.com for special rates and packages.

  • My child is on the Autism Spectrum / Has sensory issues.  Is this show suitable?

    Yes! ALL our shows are inclusive and have been designed to be autism friendly and open to children and families with sensory issues. A quiet area is also available in the foyer during the show for any nervous attendees while the show is running.

    Please let us know at info@hungrycaterpillarshow.com if you have a child on the spectrum who is attending a show with a group on another occasion – let us know your name, the date and time of the performance with your ticket numbers and we will ensure a fidget is available for them. A social story is also available to read at home prior to attending to explain what to expect when attending the show.

  • Is the theatre wheelchair friendly?

    Yes, and we’re here to help.

    Please let the Box Office know if you are booking on the phone or email us at info@hungrycaterpillarshow.com 

  • What if my child is afraid to enter the theatre?

    This is not entirely unusual for first-time theatre-goers. Our experienced House Manager is ready to assist and can show the child pictures from the show and get them comfortable so they can ease their way into the theatre at their own pace.
