For over 30 years Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people. Joined by an extraordinary creative team Monkey Baa is thrilled to be presenting a brand-new stage adaptation of this magical Australian classic.
Grandma Poss loves making magic. One day she uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible so that Hush won’t be in danger.
Hush has lots of adventures being invisible but then there comes a time when she wants to be visible again, only Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to bring Hush back. Then Grandma Poss remembers that “it’s something to do with food. People food. Not possum food.”
So begins a adventure around Australia to find the food that will make Hush’s dream come true.
