Event Description

The Art House Presents
An Australian Chamber Orchestra Production
How to Catch a Star
Based on the book by Oliver Jeffers
Adapted for the stage by Sandra Eldridge with original music by Elena Kats-Chernin 

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 Australian Chamber Orchestra 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. 

Post-Show Meet The Musicians Q&A

Audiences are advised that a 15 minute Q&A will take place directly after the show. This structured and interactive Q&A will enable audience members to learn more about the musical techniques used in the show.

Director’s Note

Adapted from Oliver Jeffers’ beautiful story of a boy hoping, wishing, and waiting, How to Catch a Star is a sophisticated theatrical experience for young people with an extraordinary musical score tracking the emotional journey of a boy determined to bring a star into his life.

The wonder of the book is captured through the finely composed art of the music, an exceptional ACO string quartet, movement, dialogue, and simple puppetry by a multi-talented performer portraying the boy. This is a joyous piece of theatre for all the family, but especially those who still every night wish upon a star.
