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.

Based on the beloved book by award-winning Northern Irish author Oliver Jeffers, Branar Téatar do Pháistí’s How to Catch a Star combines wondrous puppetry with a score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire for a magical theatre experience that reminds us all to follow our dreams.
