A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production based on the book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas.

The magical stage adaptation of the beloved Australian story is back to celebrate its 40th birthday!

Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book ‘Possum Magic’ has enchanted children for decades and Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings the paper and ink to life on stage once again!

Using a clever, nuanced palette of live action, stage magic, an original soundscape, elements of puppetry and projected animation, Monkey Baa’s award-winning creative team have translated the whimsical world of the book to a live experience for audiences 3–8 years (and their families).
