Possum Magic – 2019

For over 30 years Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people. Joined by an extraordinary creative team Monkey Baa is thrilled to be presenting a brand-new stage adaptation of this magical Australian classic.

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. But being invisible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Hush longs to see herself again. One problem. Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to make Hush visible again. And then she remembers…this particular magic requires something more, something special, something to do with food…people food. Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.

Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted us all for generations and our magical new production promises an unforgettable experience for children and adults alike.
