CDP Kids presents
A play by Richard Tulloch, adapted from the book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

Andy and Terry’s Treehouse has reached an amazing 91 stories! It is now more fantastically dangerous than ever, with a deserted desert island, a whirlpool and a giant spider.

But Andy, Terry and Jill have no idea they are about to face their biggest challenge ever. Mr Big Nose has sent his grandchildren to the Treehouse and they don’t want to just sit quietly. Can Andy, Terry and Jill master this extreme babysitting challenge? What does mysterious fortune teller Madam Know-It-All really want? And will the Big Red Button really destroy the world?

The team behind The 13, ­26, 52 and 78-Storey Treehouses Live On Stage return with a whimsical trip through this wild, weird and wonderful world. Just beware of the Fortune Teller…

Suitable for ages 6 – 12 and their families

FYI this production contains smoke haze

From the Program Coordinator…

The Treehouse books are often praised as the series that got Australian kids away from screens and back to reading, so it is no wonder the stage adaptations are as popular as they are with teachers and students. Like its predecessors, this show uses lots of clever theatrical conventions to create the zany and impossible sounding inventions from the book, bringing life to the pages your students have pored over time and time again.
