A Tale of Metamorphosis
Butterfly Wonder
Meet Inchy the caterpillar, who has just popped out of his egg! He meets new friends, hides from the bird, and eats many leaves before spinning his cocoon and emerging as a beautiful butterfly. Many songs and short dialogues introduce the flowers, animals (a hungry caterpillar in three sizes, a mouse, robin, a bee and of course the butterfly), and the change from daytime to the moon and stars of night. The treatment of metamorphosis of a little caterpillar into a butterfly is great material for early grades in natural science! Watch our trailer now (on Youtube) Butterfly Wonder is an apron lap show and VERY portable (Ingrid brings it in a basket). It is meant for classroom or living room performances. Audience size should be kept to forty and under because of the size of the stage and puppets. Ages: 3-8 Duration: 20 minutes; with puppet workshop, 1 hour. Relation to Curriculum: Life cycle of the butterfly, bees, spring, music, visual arts.
