Possum Magic

22-24 April
Magic isn’t a thing that you see; it’s a thing that you feel. And that’s exactly what this production leaves you with: a very magical feeling Glam Adelaide

Presented by Monkey Baa Theatre Company

Based on the book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas
Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare and Sandra Eldridge

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 to a live experience for audiences ages 3–8 and their families.

Running time 50mins
Suitable for ages 3-8
All persons must hold a valid ticket to enter the auditorium. If bringing a child under 24 months old, please contact the ticket office to organise a Babe in Arms ticket.
