we are very excited that chicago children's theatre has a new production available for the month of may. the internationally acclaimed mermaid theatre of nova scotia is now presenting:
a brown bear, a moon, and a caterpillar:
treasured stories by eric carle

as you can see, the production is an intriguing mix of amazing puppetry, delightful music and stunning visual effects.
