Possum Magic - Monkey Baa Theatre Company
‘Possum Magic’ is returning this January school holidays!
Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book ‘Possum Magic’ has enchanted children for over 40 years. Seen by over 150,000 young people across Australia, Monkey Baa’s delightful adaptation returns to the stage.
Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives, Grandma Poss uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible.
Possum Magic takes us on a fantastical journey to cities around Australia to ﬁnd the food that makes Hush visible again.
Featuring spellbinding magic, puppetry and original music, Monkey Baa’s award-winning team has turned the whimsical world of the book into a live experience for audiences ages 3-8 and their families.
