The team behind The 13, 26 and 52-Storey Treehouse stage adaptations is back with the newest, biggest, brightest blockbuster in the series, The 78-Storey Treehouse, on stage at Arts Centre Melbourne from 4 – 22 April 2018. Andy and Terry’s treehouse just keeps on growing. 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.
The best-selling, award-winning series of books created by much-loved duo Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton has inspired children across Australia to let their imaginations run wild. The 78-Storey Treehouse has been short-listed for the Indie Book Awards 2017 and ABIA Book of the Year for Younger Children 2017. It won the KROC Awards Best Fiction for Older Readers 2017, KOALA Award Fiction for Older Readers 2017 and YABBA Awards 2017. The book sold more than 3000 copies on its first day of sale at Dymocks stores.
In this adaptation 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?
April 4 – 22
