LIVE AT THE ORPHEUM THEATRE

Millions of young people around the world have adored the multi award-winning picture bookDiary of a Wombat. Now this iconic work, written by Australian Children’s Laureate (2014–2015) Jackie French and illustrated by 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 the humans around her. Doormats, trash 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! 

This delightful non-verbal adaptation features puppetry, movement, and live cello music from a team of revered artists including Puppetry and Movement Director, Alice Osborne (War Horse), Designer Imogen Ross and accomplished composer/cellist, Oonagh Sherrard.
