Classic children's book series on stage
The best-selling 'Storey Treehouse' book series, written by renowned authors Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, is arguably the most popular and well-known book series in Australian school playgrounds. Perth kids and their carers are in luck these school holidays with the premiere stage adaption playing at the State Theatre Centre of WA from the 9th -13th July. It's sure to be a hoot.

The team behind the successful adaptations of The 13, 16 and 52 -Storey Treehouse books have come together again to bring this version of the 78 Storey Treehouse to life in a national tour.

78 Storey Treehouse, Andy, Terry,
Samuel Welsh and Teale Howie play Terry and Andy in the stage adaptation.


In this play adaptation, Andy and Terry are going to be famous. Mr Big Shot has arrived on scene and is going to make a Hollywood blockbuster. Unfortunately for Andy though, he's set to be replaced in the film with a primate. Mel Gibbon, to be precise. The scene is set, and the battle is on. Will a Treehouse blockbuster ever be made? Who will win the battle of Andy and Terry? And spy cows, now what on earth are they?

Richard Tulloch certainly has a knack for play adaptations, with Andy Griffith's himself proclaiming the show as "rambunctious idiotic fun."
