Possum Magic

Lighthouse Theatre

Monkey Baa Theatre’s magical stage adaptation of the beloved Australian story is back to celebrate its 40th birthday!

Mem Fox & Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book ‘Possum Magic’ has enchanted children for decades & Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings the paper and ink to life on stage once again!

Using a clever, nuanced palette of live action, stage magic, an original soundscape, elements of puppetry & projected animation, Monkey Baa’s award-winning creative team have translated the whimsical world of the book to a live experience.

Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue & kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile & emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives in the form of a snake, 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. One problem. Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to make Hush visible again. And then she remembers... this particular magic requires something more, something special, something to do with food... people food. Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.
