Star in the Jar

The wonderfully warm hearted tale of Star in the Jar is brought to life by premier children’s theatre company, The Pied Piper Theatre Company and will be atthe Ropetackle Arts Centre on Saturday 1st February 2020.


Star in the Jar is a magical story celebrating sibling love, the power of kindness and the joy of doing the right thing. Brilliantly adapted for the stage by Pied Piper’s Artistic Director, Tina Williams, Star in the Jar, is based on the picture book written by Sam Hay and illustrated by Sarah Massini and is a perfectly delightful show for young theatregoers and their families.


Star in the Jar tells the tale of a little boy who stumbles across a special star. He puts it in a jar and takes it on adventures. But the poor star misses its home… Can the little boy and his big sister find a way to send the star safely back?


With characteristic flair and inspirational creativity The Pied Piper Theatre Company uses word play, rhythm and rhyme, original music and songs to lift Star in the Jar from storybook page to stage. With a talented professional cast and an ingenious set, Star in the Jar will instantly capture and excite the imaginations of those aged 3 to 8 years and their families.


           The Pied Piper Theatre Company believes passionately in the magic of live story telling and has been performing throughout the UK, Europe and Asia with wonderfully inventive shows for children for the past 33 years.
