For more than 30 years, Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia. Now, audiences can experience the magic for themselves when Monkey Baa brings their brand-new stage adaptation of a great Australian classic to The Joan on 9 & 10 April.

With over 5 million copies sold, Australia’s top-selling picture book needs no introduction. Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted us all for generations. This brand new adaptation, from Australia’s leading theatre company for young audiences, promises an unforgettable experience for children and adults alike.

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 in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. Hush has many wonderful adventures with her newfound power, but being invisible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be - Hush longs to see herself again. Then she remembers...the spell to make Hush visible again requires something more, something special, something to do with food…people food. Adults, grandparents and their little ones will be taken on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.

Joined by an extraordinary creative team, Monkey Baa brings to life the characters, journey and love that has made Possum Magic the most-loved and best-selling Australian picture book of all time.

A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production
Based on the book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas
