Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat. Now finally this iconic work by Australian Children’s Laureate (2014/15), Jackie French and Bruce Whatley comes to the stage at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday 30 May at 2pm.

Dear Diary - Monday Morning: Slept. Afternoon: Slept. Evening: Ate. Scratched. Night: Ate.

A typical day. Don't be fooled! This wombat leads a very busy and demanding life.

Meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her. Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial - she wrestles unknown creatures, runs her own digging business, and most difficult of all - trains her humans. She teaches them when she would like carrots, when she would like oats and when she would like both at the same time. But these humans are slow learners.

Find out how one wombat - between scratching, sleeping and eating - manages to fit the difficult job of training humans into her busy schedule. A delightful and entertaining peek into the life of one very busy wombat!

Diary of a Wombat, is an exquisite theatre work for young people. Produced by Monkey Baa, Australia’s leading professional theatre company for young audiences, Creative Directorate Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry have crafted one of Australia’s best loved stories onto the stage.

“We've assembled an extraordinary team of artists to bring this iconic picture book to life,” said Eva Di Cesare. Through the magic of puppetry, a live cello score and a brilliant set design, audiences are going to fall in love with Mothball all over again when she burrows her way on to our stage.

Diary of a Wombat is such an enduring childhood classic and Monkey Baa’s signature style brings this delightful story to children aged three and over. Jackie French, author of Diary of a Wombat said, "What Monkey Baa has done is extraordinary. In fact, what they have done is impossible, but Monkey Baa has always done the impossible."

Don’t miss this delightful, funny one and only public performance. 

Baa uses the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages 3+ to the stage.

We cannot wait for Mothball the wombat to lumber into the Joan to demand more carrots. One general public show only so book your tickets now online or phone the box office 4723 7600.

Duration: Approximately 45mins, no interval.

Suitable for ages 3 plus and their grown-ups!

Tickets on sale now at the box office.
