This March, the good people from Gardner & Wife Theatre are bringing an UK children production, “How To Catch A Star” by Blunderbus Theatre Company to Malaysia!

Based on the best-selling children’s classic by Oliver Jeffers and performed by UK’s Blunderbus Theatre Company, the childrens’ theatre company already so well known here in Malaysia with their productions of “The Selfish Crocodile”, “Giraffes Can’t Dance”, “Elmer The Elephant”, and “The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark”.


This gentle, reassuring tale is brought to life with an irresistible blend of live music, puppetry, and storytelling especially for children aged 3 till 7, and grown-up stargazers!

This book was Jeffer’s first illustrator book, and debuted in 2004. That same year the book was shortlisted for “Booktrust Early Years Award (Best New Illustrator)” and in 2005 it was awarded a Merit for the “CBI Bisto Book of the Year Awards”. He is widely known for his picture books for children, and his style of illustration uses mixed media and is recognised for its subtle narrative and use of space in composition.
