Audience reactions: “Very moving!” “The kids were enthralled.” “Really funny!”
School groups and families were treated to Star Chasers, described as a tapestry of music, movement and magical imagery, at the Barn Theatre last spring. Now Barnstorm Theatre Company will bring this enthralling play on a national tour during April and May 2018.
A modern-day adventure for all, Star Chasers sees Billy and Dad heading north with just a tent and a box full of Mam’s memories.
On the way they pitch their tent, conjure Mam’s stories and quarrel as they seek journey’s end and a new beginning.
This is a rich exploration of the relationship between a parent and child and their attempts to come to terms with the shared loss in their lives. A tapestry of music, movement and magical imagery.
Star Chasers is a play for children 4+ years, their teachers and families.
“I thought the message was very strong and that it was really beautifully and subtly handled.” – Audience member
