How does a nature-loving explorer become a bug’s best friend? Find out when award-winning puppeteer Faye Dupras brings a delightful eco-story about the ways we all grow and change to the LICM Theater. When Trudy’s friend Harold the caterpillar suddenly transforms into a chrysalis, she’s determined to do the same. Just when she is about to give up hope, she learns that her tiny friend needs her now more than ever. Live music, colorful critters, and oodles of audience interaction make this show a fun ecological romp in the wild! Original music was created for this puppet show by Max Weigert of Boston. Be sure to see this show and then visit LICM’s Our Backyard exhibit.
