Stella and the Starshiners


In a secret place at the top of everything stands the tallest mountain in the world. On the peak of the mountain sits a tiny little village. In the centre of the village leans the tallest ladder in the world. At the bottom of the ladder is Stella. Stella is afraid of heights.

With their celebrated brand of puppetry, live music and dazzling storytelling, join Open Attic Company (Much Ado About Puffin) as they make unexpected new friends and reach for the stars at the ‘Greatest Ever Star Shiner Competition… EVER!’. Stella has been ignored for too long and she’s determined to show the other villagers that she can shine a star as well as anyone. All she has to do is climb that ladder…

From top to bottom this is a tale about bravery and overcoming the things that stop us from really looking up. Could this finally be Stella’s time to shine…?
