How to Catch a Star

Wednesday 12 June | 10:30am and 12pm | GPAC Main Theatre

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… 

Based on the book by international best-selling author Oliver Jeffers, How to Catch a Star is brand new ACO Families production which will take you on a journey from awe and wonder, through perseverance to triumph. 

In a stunning adaptation by Sandra Eldridge, Jeffers’ magical tale about reaching for dreams will be brought to life on stage through storytelling and exquisite new music by Elena Kats-Chernin performed by an ACO string quartet. This enchanting performance will leave audiences of all ages filled with hope and optimism. 

"The music was fabulous, the set was perfect, the script was terrific and the actor was marvellous. I couldn't speak more highly of the whole experience..." (ACO Audience Member)
