Looking for a great day out with the family? The Australian classic ‘Possum Magic’ is making a magical return to the stage!

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.

‘Pack your Grandma, pack your child, pack enough Vegemite sandwiches and lamingtons for all and go and treat yourself to a bit of theatrical bush bewitchment with Possum Magic.’

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+ and their families.

About Monkey Baa

Monkey Baa makes great theatre for young people and for over 24 years we presented award-winning theatrical experiences that inspire and empower young people across Australia and internationally.

For the past decade, Monkey Baa has made its home on Gadigal, at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre in Sydney. This is where we work, play and produce high-quality theatre. We are one of Australia’s widest touring companies with 28 national tours to 135 regional and remote communities, 5 international tours and over 3000 performances reaching over 1.5 million young people.

Nearly a quarter of a century of operation requires resilience and ingenuity. Much has changed since its inception in 1997 – particularly in the past 2 years – but Monkey Baa’s appetite for development, transformation and renewal remains the same. With our founding director and Artistic Director, Eva Di Cesare and our Executive Director, Kevin du Preez, this strategy marks the start of the next chapter of the Monkey Baa’s story.
