The show:

‘I wish I could catch a star... a star would shine forever’

  A long time ago and very far away, Miki, Polar Bear and Penguin lived in a place that was always

  cold and dark.

  One midwinter eve, they make a wish, and Miki embarks on a magical adventure…

  ...in search of a star.

Featuring amazing underwater creatures, songs to sing along to and extraordinary puppetry, Miki is an inspiring story about friendship, courage and adventure.

Adapted by Slot Machine Theatre from the book by acclaimed artist Stephen Mackey.
