Starlight is a gentle story specially created for children between 2 and 6 and their families.

Starlight is the story of little possum, who went outside one night and saw bright stars shining in the sky. He collected some starlight to take home. The next day his mother was ill and little possum had to find his own food. He was afraid , but his mother told him how brave and clever he was…and so his great journey began. He met other animals along the way, who taught him all about friendship and family. He also discovered lots of things about science and nature. Lost in the dark he had to find his way home by starlight. Starlight is told with the use of simple props, a handkerchief and live music.
