Based on the award-winning book by Jacky French and Bruce Whatley, Diary of a Wombat is one of the most read and famous children’s books of all time.

Millions of children around the world have adored the iconic Australian children’s classic which has made its way off the page and onto the stage at council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre at 10.30am and 12.30pm on Tuesday, September 19.

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!

Monkey Baa Theatre Company Production and a team of revered artists, including puppetry and movement director Alice Osborne (War Horse 2012/13), designer Imogen Ross (Hitler’s Daughter) and accomplished composer/cellist Oonagh Sherrard, use the magic of puppetry and live music to bring this delightful story for ages three and over to the stage.

Directed by Eva Di Cesare and presented by Monkey Baa, the critically acclaimed production of Diary of a Wombat features a collection of lovable puppets during a 45-minute show.

This Australian-made show will excite, educate and entertain new readers and first-time theatre-goers, while for those who grew up with these books will delight in experiencing one of the most popular children’s books ever written.

More than one million Australian young people, their families and teachers have seen a Monkey Baa performance.

Monkey Baa takes a “whole of childhood” approach, creating plays and arts education programs for ages 3-18 and providing professional development opportunities for teachers.

Tickets are just $20 per person or $68 for groups of 4 (minimum two children).
