Riverside presents a Monkey Baa Theatre Company Production
POSSUM MAGIC
Based on the book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas

The team behind Diary of a Wombat and Josephine Wants to Dance bring the award-winning Australian classic that has been delighting young people for over 30 years to life on stage in this enchanting new adaptation.

Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. When danger arrives in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible.

After embarking on many adventures, Hush longs to see herself again. However, Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to make Hush visible!

This heart-warming tale will weave its magic and take you and your students on an unforgettable journey around Australia.

Free in-school workshops run by Monkey Baa are available by request prior to the performance season. These are limited to the first few schools who express interest, so book early!

FYI this production contains pyrotechnics.
