Pitterpat the Crazee Caterpillar debuted at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown where the multimedia show played to sellout audiences. Pittterpat has also played at the Wits 969 Festival in Johannesburg as well as several reading festivals and entertainment venues around the country.

Two live performers – The Storyteller and The Maestro – interact with the audience to help them call Pitterpat to start the show. Pitterpat is very late for his curtain call and so the characters show us the building blocks of music, creating beat rhythm, chords, melody and words. Pitterpat arrives and the story can begin.

Once the animation begins, the two actors interact with the screen to create the story, music, songs and excitement to delight adults and children alike.
