The magical stage adaptation of the beloved Australian story.
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. 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 into an exciting live experience for audiences aged 3-8 and their families.

"Magic isn’t a thing that you see; it’s a thing that you feel. And that’s exactly what this production leaves you with: a very magical feeling."
"People food for the soul."
Judith Greenway, Arts Hub
"I honestly thought it was one of the best performances I have ever seen. I took my daughter and her friend and they loved it - they laughed and laughed, and were completely blown away with the magic."
