Australian Chamber Orchestra have a new production which will take you on a journey from awe and wonder, through to perseverance and triumph these Spring School Holidays.

Based on the book by international best-selling author Oliver Jeffers, How to Catch a Star is a brand new ACO production.

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…

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. Weaving together story and live music, ACO Family shows offer an inspirational introduction to classical music. With newly commissioned music by some of Australia’s most acclaimed composers, performed by some of Australia’s finest musicians, these experiences will be sure to ignite a lifelong love of music and the performing arts.

This enchanting experience that will leave you and your little ones filled with hope and optimism.

Note: Performances are approximately 25–30 minutes, followed by an interactive “meet the musicians” session. Children aged 0-23 months at the time of a performance may be seated on a parent’s lap free of charge. All children occupying a seat or aged 2 years of age must hold a valid ticket.
