Blunderbus Theatre Company has created a new stage version of Oliver Jeffers’ award-winning picture book, How to Catch a Star, which they sprinkle with theatrical stardust at Worthing’s Connaught Studio on February 16 (11am and 2pm).
This adaptation remains true to Oliver Jeffers’ story and tells of Boy who loves stars very much.
Each night he watches stars from his bedroom window and wishes he could have one of his own. One day, he decides to catch a star and invites young audiences aged three to seven to join him on his adventure, accompanied by grown-up stargazers, as his journey stretches across land, sea and skies in search of a starry friend.
Blunderbus has devised shows for young theatre-goers for over 15 years. They have previously adapted Giraffes Can’t Dance, The Selfish Crocodile, Elmer the Elephant and most recently The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark.
The team behind Blunderbus have designed and handcrafted each puppet, prop and piece of scenery to create the funny, gentle retelling of a beautiful story with a very happy ending.
Artistic director and stage adapter Bill Davies said: “The children receive a very warm welcome, are helped to feel at home and gently encouraged to join us on our celestial adventures.
“After the show, the children are waved off with a very special goodbye and a chance to meet some of the fabulous puppets!”
Tickets: £7.50, family of four £26.
