The 78-Storey Treehouse | Brisbane

14 December, 2023 - 17 December, 2023

The 78-Storey Treehouse – Live in Brisbane!

The stage adaption of the popular book The 78-Storey Treehouse is coming to QUT Gardens Theatre from 14 – 17 December 2023. 

Andy and Terry’s treehouse just keeps on growing. With yet another 13 levels, it’s now got a Scribbletorium, a high-security potato chip storage facility (guarded by one very angry duck!) and even an open-air movie theatre.

Speaking of movies, our friends are going to be famous! The legendary Mr Big Shot has arrived to make a Hollywood blockbuster! But when his first step is to fire Andy and replace him with a monkey – well, a gibbon named Mel Gibbon – the battle is on. Will the Treehouse Blockbuster ever get made? Who will win the battle of Andy and Terry? And why are those mysterious spy cows turning up everywhere?

The team behind The 13, 26, 52 & 91-Storey Treehouse shows brings the blockbuster 78-Storey Treehouse back to the stage for the first time since 2018! Recommended for children aged 6-12 and their adults… but watch out for those cows!
