Join us for a magical Christmas at The Hullabaloo to see this enchanting puppet adaptation of Oliver Jeffers’ beloved picture book for everyone aged 3 years+ and their families.

Once there was a boy who was always looking up.
He loved stars so much that he dreamt of having one as his friend.
This is the story of his adventure.

Combining spell-binding storytelling with puppetry and a magical score, How to Catch a Star is a festive treat from the award-winning Branar which reminds us all to follow our dreams.

Non-verbal show.
