Possum Magic Stage Show
Don’t miss the chance to see the incredible stage adaptation of Mem Fox’s iconic Possum Magic by the extraordinary team at Monkey Baa these June/July school holidays.
If you and your children love the Possum Magic book then you are going to love the stage show version of this classic Australian tale of magic, adventure and fun.
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 uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible.
Hush has many wonderful adventures, but being invisible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and Hush longs to see herself again. Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.
Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted readers for generations and now this magical, unforgettable new production will mesmerise children and adults alike.
