ACO Families: How To Catch A Star
Once there was a boy and the boy loved stars very much.
Every night he watched the stars from his window and wished he had one of his own.
One day, he decided he would try to catch a star… but first he had to think of a plan…
Don’t miss the return season of our enchanting sell-out show, How to Catch a Star, an ACO Families production for children and their families, next July school holidays.
Based on the internationally bestselling children’s book by acclaimed artist, author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers, this heartwarming production about reaching for dreams will take you on a journey from awe and wonder, through perseverance to triumph. In this stunning adaptation, Jeffers’ magical tale is brought to life on stage through storytelling and exquisite music performed by an ACO string quartet.
Following on from the ACO’s award-winning children’s shows, including There’s a Sea in My Bedroom, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, The Princess, The Pea (and the Brave Escapee) and The Nutcracker, this magical production is the perfect introduction to the world of classical music for audiences young and young at heart.
