In the Playhouse

The much loved story of Hush and Grandma Poss comes to life on stage!

For more than 30 years, Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia. 

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 in the form of a snake, 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.   

One problem. Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to make Hush visible again. And then she remembers...this particular magic requires something more, something special, something to do with food…people food.   

Share this timeless story of friendship and magic with the little Mem Fox fans in your life!
