Love the book Possum Magic by Mem Fox? Possum Magic is a brand-new stage adaptation of the much loved picture book presented by Monkey Baa Theatre Company at Civic Theatre Newcastle.

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.

The 50 minute performance (which contain pyrotechnics) runs on Tuesday 27 August at 1pm and Wednesday 28 August at 12:30pm. This show is recommended for ages 3 – 8.
