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 Teatar do Pháistí are proud
to present How to Catch a Star.

This adaptation combines puppetry by Grace Kiely and
Neasa Ní Chuanaigh with stunning puppets by Suse Reibish.
With a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire and
directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn. Branar’s signature storytelling
creates a show which remind us all to follow our dreams.

Aged 4 upwards
Non-verbal show
Duration: approx 45 minutes
