As part of National Storytelling Week 2021, The Story Museum presents:
Suddenly A Star
A new exciting five-episode audio production for families and schools...
Follow the fortunes of songwriter David after his band’s tour is cancelled and he’s forced to return to the family nest. As David and his mum learn to live together through lockdown, they reminisce about David’s childhood dreams and hopes, sharing a series of traditional tales along the way through music, song and storytelling.
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.
Presented over 5 days throughout National Storytelling Week (1st – 5th Feb) each episode is accompanied by a free learning resource for creative lesson plan ideas, for use in both the classroom or at home, created by The Story Museum’s Learning Team.
