Butterfly Ballad

Piccadilly Puppets
Caterpillar and Butterfly puppets from Butterfly Ballad

Developed for the opening of the Callaway Gardens Butterfly Center, this production traces the metamorphosis of Katie and Kevin Caterpillar from egg to caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly. Join them on their fascinating migration to Mexico and marvel as they return to the United States to lay their eggs, beginning the life cycle all over again. The story, narrated by Mother Nature and performed with hand and rod puppets, culminates in a discussion of what each individual can do to maintain the balance of nature. Students learn a few Spanish words along the way.
