How to Catch a Star

Once there was a boy who was always looking up. He dreamt of having a star as a friend. This is the story of his adventure.

Based on the beloved book by award-winning Irish author Oliver Jeffers, this adaptation combines puppetry and a magical original score.

This is a heart-warming and beautiful tale to be enjoyed by the whole family.

This show was created with support from the Arts Council of Ireland and is kindly supported by Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain.
