Mem Fox’s classic story which many of us grew up with is being brought to life in an enchanting live stage performance the kids will love by the extraordinary team at Monkey Baa.
If you are unfamiliar with the story, 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, 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. Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.

Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted readers for generations and now this magical, unforgettable new production will mesmerise children and adults alike.
