Way up in the deep blue night sky, a twinkling star hears a little girl’s birthday wish . . . she wishes she could dance with the stars. Wanting to make this wish come true, the star tells the moon, the moon tells the sun, the sun tells the wind and the rain, and together they dream up a wonderful plan. Told through a magical mix of music, light and imagination, A Ladder to the Stars is a heartfelt and humorous story of what can happen when the universe hears your dreams.

It draws its inspiration from the seafaring history in Java and the true tale of arrival in Australia told by a small boy. Combining puppetry, song, shadow imagery and sound, the show bustles with all the life of the ocean. Audience members, both young and oldwill be transported by this exquisite adventure, created by Australia’s Polyglot Theatre and Indonesia’s Papermoon Puppet Theatre. Get your tickets now.

Come join in the magical adventure of the tailor. Get your tickets here.
