Possum Magic

Monkey Baa Theatre Company


For more than 30 years, Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia.

Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. Hush has many wonderful adventures. But being invisible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Hush longs to see herself again.

Joined by an extraordinary creative team, Monkey Baa brings to life the characters, journey and love that has made Possum Magic the most loved and best-selling Australian picture book of all time.

Based on the book by: Mem Fox and Julie Vivas
Adapted for the stage by: Eva Di Cesare and Sandra Eldridge
