Mem Fox and Julie Vivas’ beloved picture book Possum Magic has enchanted children for over 40 years.

Seen by over 150,000 young people across Australia, Monkey Baa’s delightful adaptation returns to the stage.

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 Poss uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. ‘Possum Magic’ takes us on a fantastical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again.

Featuring spellbinding magic, puppetry and original music, Monkey Baa’s award-winning team has turned the whimsical world of the book into an exciting live experience for audiences aged 3-8 and their families.

‘Possum Magic’ is the first time Sydney Coliseum Theatre and Monkey Baa have partnered with magic and illusion designer Adam Mada as part of the magic workshops experience!

All the magic in the show was created by Mada, who will present a series of workshops showcasing the magic. Available for purchase for all ticket holders.

The Coliseum at Rooty Hill is committed to continuously raising the benchmark in entertainment for the Greater Western Sydney region. The 2,000-seat theatre delivers world-class artists and performances hosting musicals, dramatic theatre, live music, ballet and more. The Coliseum also features three foyers, seven bars, numerous entertaining areas, rehearsal space and an on-site commercial kitchen.

It is a must visit!
