About Suddenly A Star at The Story Museum

The Story Museum’s festive show for 2021 is Suddenly A Star – a constellation of stories and songs for ages 5+.

This Christmas, The Story Museum is pulling out all the stops with a storytelling show for children aged 5+ and their families, all wrapped up in music and song.

A mother and her son share traditional tales of clever grandparents (as if there’s any other kind), donkeys, wishes, and cunning mice that will be music to your ears. Join them as they explore how a star can suddenly appear and strike an unexpected chord.

With gentle humour and a big dollop of light-hearted family squabbles (it is Christmas after all), this is a show that will have all ages under its spell and carries the important message that everyone has the ability to shine their own light, in their own way.

Written and performed by award-winning writer Renata Allen and songwriter and musician David Gibb, Suddenly A Star weaves a galaxy of stories stretching back through time to the present day that’s guaranteed to leave you with music in your heart and stars in your eyes.

Run time: 60 minutes, with no interval
