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 Irish author Oliver Jeffers, Branar Téatar do Pháistí are proud to present the world premiere of How To Catch a Star, at the Galway International Arts Festival, July 18th – 29th 2017.

This adaptation combines puppetry by Grace Kiely and Neasa Ní Chuanaigh with stunning puppets designed by Suse Reibisch. With a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire, beautiful set design by Maeve Clancy, the amazing costumes and fabric pieces by Elaine Mears and the atmospheric lighting design of Ciaran Kelly and directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn, Branar’s signature storytelling creates a show which reminds us all to follow our dreams.
