Diary of a Wombat

Date: 2 Jun 2018

After a mammoth 59 venue tour across Australia and a showcase at the International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) showcase in Philadelphia, Diary of a Wombat returns home to the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre for a very limited season in the July school holidays.

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 the 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!

Based on the multi award-winning picture book, Diary of a Wombat, by Australian Children’s Laureate Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, Monkey Baa director Eva Di Cesare, puppetry and movement director Alice Osborne, designer Imogen Ross and composer Oonagh Sherrard use the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages 3+ to the stage.
