Possum Magic QUT

Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book ‘Possum Magic’ has enchanted children for over 40 years, and now it’s coming to Brisbane!

Join Grandma Poss and Hush on a magical journey filled with spellbinding magic, puppetry, and original music. Watch as Grandma Poss turns wombats blue, kookaburras pink, makes dingoes smile, and emus shrink. When danger strikes, Grandma Poss makes Hush invisible, setting off a fantastical adventure across Australia to find the food that will make Hush visible again.

This award-winning adaptation by Monkey Baa Theatre Company is perfect for children aged 3-8 and their families.
