SCHOOLS: How to Catch A Star

Monday 29th November, 2021 - 09:00 - Friday 10th December, 2021 - 14:00


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. Branar, in association with Town Hall Theatre, are delighted to present a new film version of their acclaimed production of How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers. Partnering with 24 venues across Ireland, all schools will have the opportunity to experience this unique and well loved story.
Based on the beloved book, this film will be available to stream to classrooms for a limited period.  Schools can book to receive access to the filmed production for a full week and receive access to a dedicated online educational resource pack for pre- and post-engagement.

This adaptation combines an original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire, puppetry by Grace Kiely and Neasa Ní Chuanaigh, directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn with design by Maeve Clancy. Branar’s signature storytelling creates a show which reminds us all to follow our dreams. 

“Visually stunning with a twinkling score” – Irish Times

“Branar Téatar do Pháistí has become renowned for magical storytelling” – Irish Independent

Non-verbal show
