Monkey Baa Theatre Company is bringing to life the much-loved characters and whimsical journey of Possum Magic at HOTA this weekend, July 12 & 13.
It's based on one of the best-selling Australian picture books of all time. Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted audiences for generations and this brand new theatrical adaption promises to deliver an unforgettable experience for children and adults.
Monkey Baa will take audiences on a journey to tell the enthralling tale about magical ‘Grandma Poss’ who goes on an adventure to cities around Australia to find the food that can undo her spell and make ‘Hush’ visible again.
CEO of HOTA, Criena Gehrke, said the adored story comes to life in this remarkable adaptation for all ages and is one not to miss.
“I really love seeing classic books such as this in the hands of such an incredibly creative company,” she said.
“For more than twenty years, Monkey Baa have been making great theatre that provokes empathy, imagination, respect and understanding. This will be a real treat for little ones and their grown-ups.”
This exciting new stage adaption of Possum Magic is written by Eva Di Cesare and Sandra Eldridge – who also directs the production – and is based on the iconic book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas that has sold over 5 million copies.
Possum Magic will take to the stage at HOTA, Home of the Arts on Friday 12th July at 1.30pm and Saturday 13th July at 11am and 1.30pm.
