Would you please welcome to the stage….Andy and Terry!
Yes that’s right. Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s best-selling book, the one and only, super famous, ultra brilliant The 13 Storey Treehouse has been turned into an equally brilliant show for the theatre AND YOU’RE INVITED!
Curtain up! Today’s the day. There’s just one problem, they forgot to write it! And where will they find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys, and a giant gorilla? Luckily the theatre has an extensive prop and costume collection & some very impressive stage technology.
Direct from it’s sell-out season at the Sydney Opera House and adapted by Richard Tulloch, the 13 Storey Treehouse is bought to life by a seriously funny cast and magical moments of theatrical wizardry.
Just remember to USE YOUR IMAGINATION!
