How I wonder what you are...

Stella loves the stars. Every evening she gazes at them through her telescope. But one night her little brother Ryan wishes on a star, extends the telescope all the way and starts climbing up it.

Stella follows him. But something is wrong in the night sky. There’s Pegasus the flying horse – but there’s also a cow jumping over the moon. And the Great Bear and the Little Bear have been joined by a medium-sized bear… Inspired by nursery rhymes and the amazing science of the stars, let the mystery of space lift you up, up and away…

The development and initial tour of ‘Twinkle Twonkle’ was funded by Arts Council England, with additional schools touring funding from John Lyon’s Charity. It was produced in association with the Royal Society, in their 350th year. The show toured the UK in 2010 and the USA in 2012.
