The premiere stage adaptation of The 78-Storey Treehouse is back in Brisbane in the June-July school holidays, playing at QUT Gardens Theatre. And fans will need to get in quick to book tickets as the show is certain to sell out quickly.
The team behind the hit adaptations of The 13-, 26-, and 52-Storey Treehouses have come together once again to bring Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s bestseller The 78-Storey Treehouse to life on stage for a national tour following premiere seasons at QPAC and Sydney Opera House.
Andy and Terry’s treehouse has just kept on growing and 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.
In this must see adaptation, Andy and Terry are going to be famous as 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?
Audiences and critics alike love the show, with Children’s Books Daily describing it as “Everything a family could wish for in a stage production… clever… outstanding… what a pleasure”.
Andy Griffiths himself is even more pleased, labelling the show “mad, rollicking, rambunctious idiotic fun.”
