CDP Theatre Producers Present

The 52-Storey Treehouse

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 14 May 2016

They’re back again! Andy and Terry’s Treehouse is now 52 storeys high, with yet more fantastic inventions: a rocket powered carrot launcher, the Disguise-o-matic 5000 and even a Ninja Snail Training Academy!

Today is a special day. It’s Andy’s birthday, but Terry has forgotten! To make matters worse Mr Big Nose has mysteriously disappeared, and to top it all off Jill has fallen into a deep sleep and they just can’t wake her up.

So Andy and Terry set off on a crazy adventure tackling a world of startling obstacles including a hungry caterpillar, an angry vegetable kingdom, and a 100 year ninja-snail epic voyage. Will they solve the mysteries and survive the dangers that test even their ingenuity?

Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s latest bestseller comes to life on the stage as the team behind the hit adaptations of The 13-Storey Treehouse and The 26-Storey Treehouse return with this crazy, imaginative and engaging play.

So what are you waiting for? Come on up!
