Presented by CDP Kids
Would you please welcome to the stage... Andy and Terry!
Perth audiences have the chance to experience the stage adaptation of THE 13-STOREY TREEHOUSE, Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s best-selling book, when it plays from 6-10 July 2022 at the State Theatre Centre of WA.
The best-selling book has been brought to life on stage in a premiere adaptation from award-winning playwright Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas) for children 6-12 – and their adults!
Who wouldn't want to live in a treehouse? Especially a 13-Storey Treehouse that has everything, including a bowling alley, a secret underground laboratory, self-making beds, a vegetable vaporiser and a marshmallow machine that shoots marshmallows into your mouth whenever you're hungry. Andy and Terry live there, make stories together, and have a series of completely nutty adventures.
Today’s the day they’re going to bring those stories to the stage in their first play– except 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? They may not have these things, but they do have some friends to help out, a box of costumes and props, some pretty awesome technology and a truckload of imagination!
What to expect...
The cracker team, under the leadership of director Julian Louis (Standing Room Only, Wilde Tales), use physical theatre, puppetry and music to bring the bestselling book to the stage.
Audiences and critics alike loved the show, with The Australian describing it as “a cheerful and brisk production…that has the kids engaged and amused from the outset”.
“It’s got the same feeling as the book, which is all the fun of inventing things and creating them and then them going out of control” says author Andy Griffiths, who has won over 50 children’s choice awards and been on the New York Times bestseller list. “There’s a lot of joy and fun.”
To get everyone excited for The 13 Storey Treehouse, find lots of fun & silly activities for the whole family below!
