Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat. Now finally this iconic work by Australian Children’s Laureate, Jackie French and Bruce Whatley comes to the stage.
Meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of humans around her.
Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial.
Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence, humans are quite easily trained!
Monkey Baa uses the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages 3+ to the stage.
