A Ladder to the Stars
Tickets: £7.00 / £25.00 Family Ticket (x4)
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 puppetry, music, light and imagination, this is a heartfelt and humorous story of what can happen when the universe hears your dreams.
For the past 25 years Visible Fictions has been creating innovative and dynamic theatrical productions for young people of all ages and adults. Many of these productions have toured all over the world. We are delighted to welcome this leading Scottish theatre company to the Puppet Animation Festival for the first time.
“Everything – music, cosmic puppets, characterisation and humour – gels together with deceptive ease. Even the ending, which could hint at how human life is so much more transient than that of a star, has an uplifting feel. A gift of a show for wee ones.” The Herald.
