Best-selling authors Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s much loved book “The 26-Storey Treehouse” comes to life on stage for the school holidays at QUT Gardens Theatre from 29 June – 7 July.
This original stage adaptation of “The 26-Storey Treehouse” for children 6-12 and their families is halfway through a national tour after its Sydney Opera House premiere, and follows the highly successful stage production of “The 13-Storey Treehouse”, which toured to Brisbane in 2014 to critical and audience acclaim.
Much loved characters Andy and Terry return, along with their friend Jill and the mysterious Hector Houtkop. And of course, the treehouse has another 13 Storeys, and you know what that means…
More INVENTIONS – like the 78 flavour ice-cream-dispensing robot and the brain bamboozling Maze of Doom (not to mention the self-inflating underpants) and more things to go WRONG – not least of which is the very real possibility that the entire show is a complete and utter disaster. Will Andy and Terry push Jill to her absolute limits? Who is this shady Hector Houtkop, with a really bad pirate accent? And what about ALL THOSE PIRATES?
Adapted by award-winning playwright and author Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas) under the artistic direction of Julian Louis and directed by Liesel Badorrek, “The 26-Storey Treehouse” is brought to you by the same cracker team that delivered the smash-hit stage version of “The 13-Storey Treehouse”.
“The 26-Storey Treehouse play—like the book—extends and deepens the fun that began in The 13-Storey” says author Andy Griffiths, who has won over 50 children’s choice awards and been on the New York Times bestseller list. “It’s even crazier and more ridiculous than the first play AND it’s got a pirate with a wooden head! Who could ask for anything more?”
“Lively performances, colourful design … and the show’s whimsical humour has the kids in fits of giggles…. Ideal family theatre” (The Age)
<"a fabulous adaptation... the perfect performance to take your Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton fans to... don't miss a second of this wonderful production." (Alphabet Street)
