A play by Richard Tulloch
Adapted from the book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton
Incredibly popular with families, students and teachers alike, after a three year break from touring this fabulous production is back!
Would you please welcome to the stage…Andy and Terry!
Yes that’s right. Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s best-selling book, the one and only, super-famous, ultra-brilliant The 13-Storey Treehouse has been turned into an equally brilliant show for the theatre. And you’re invited!
Curtain up! Today’s the day. There’s just one problem. They forgot to write it! And where will they find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys, and a giant gorilla? Luckily the theatre has an extensive prop and costume collection and some very impressive stage technology.
Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas), brings this book to life with a seriously funny cast and magical moments of theatrical wizardry.
Just remember to “use your imagination!”

From the Program Coordinator:
Always a hit, it’s great to have this POPULAR AND ORIGINAL Treehouse story return to Riverside’s stage. As Andy Griffiths said recently, “there is a depth in the books that encourages the kids to read and re-read and really fall in love not just with the world that you have written but with the act of reading itself.” We hope in coming to see this work they will also fall in love with the theatre!

Please ensure you have given a valid email address on your booking form as this is our main method of communication.
- RIVERSIDE WILL CONFIRM YOUR BOOKING
Riverside will confirm your booking and invoice the school for a non-refundable 25% deposit. Teachers receive complimentary seating on a 20:1 ratio (unless otherwise stipulated). Once you have paid your deposit, your booking is secure and Riverside will issue an invoice for full payment.
- FINAL PAYMENT
Full payment is required 4 weeks prior to the performance date.
If we do not receive payment OR proof of your DoE purchase order, we have the right to cancel your booking and you will forfeit your deposit.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS – DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION (DoE) PAYMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The DoE takes 30 days from an invoice being submitted to payment being received by Riverside, therefore we MUST have full payment OR proof that the purchase order has been submitted to the DoE no later than four weeks prior to the performance date.
This is a new system for many public schools so we strongly recommend receiving monies and permission slips at least 7 weeks before the payment is due. This will allow any final changes in numbers (subject to availability). We cannot reduce numbers after payment has been received.
ALL OTHER SCHOOLS (INCLUDING INDEPENDENT AND CATHOLIC)
Confirmation of final numbers and final balance is required four weeks prior to the performance date. A reduction of numbers is not permitted after this date.
An increase of numbers is possible after the final payment day but is subject to availability.
Please note, all school bookings made within 4 school weeks of a performance date must be paid in full within 1 week of confirmation and are final. There are no refunds or changes to numbers or dates on these bookings.
- FINAL INFORMATION SENT TO SCHOOLS
Prior to your visit, we will send you detailed information via email to ensure you have a hassle-free excursion. This will include updating you on any possible changes to running times or more detailed information as it emerges from the rehearsal process.
- ATTEND AND ENJOY!
