Diary of a Wombat – 2018

Diary of a Wombat – BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

After a mammoth 59 venue tour across Australia and a showcase at the International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) showcase in Philadelphia, Diary of a Wombat will return home to the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre for a very limited season in the July school holidays.

Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat by Australian Children’s Laureate (2014/15), Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.

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. Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence, humans are quite easily trained!

Monkey Baa Director, Eva Di Cesare and a team of revered artists including Puppetry and Movement Director, Alice Osborne (War Horse 2012/13), Designer Imogen Ross (Hitler’s Daughter) and accomplished composer/cellist, Oonagh Sherrard use the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages 3+ to the stage.
