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, Branar are proud to present How to Catch a Star.
This adaptation directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn, seamlessly blends stunning puppet design by Suse Reibisch, a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire, with Branar’s signature storytelling - creating a show which reminds us all to follow our dreams.
How To Catch a Star is published by HarperCollins Children’s Publishers.
