Andy Griffiths’ hugely popular story returns for the summer school holidays
It's the treehouse of all our dreams – 13 storeys high, including a bowling alley, an underground lab, beds that tidy themselves and never-ending marshmallows! Andy and Terry live there (and we're so jealous).
Award-winning playwright and author Richard Tulloch (Bananas in Pyjamas) brings his latest book to the stage for an hour-long show of adventure, laughter and lots of fun.
Due to overwhelming demand, The 13-Storey Treehouse will return to Sydney Opera House for the summer school holidays. Tickets are available to book now.
I saw The 13-Storey Treehouse at Sydney Opera House and it was amazing! I was expecting the main characters Andy [played by Luke Joslin] and Terry [Mark Owen-Taylor] to act out the parts of the book that they could easily transfer to the stage, but much to my surprise they performed the whole book in detail.
The best part of the play was the humour... and when I say humour, I don't mean all the boring old jokes – I mean the really hilarious clever humour. Every scene was hysterical.
The book was cleverly brought up to date when one of the characters produced his iPhone 5S (only released a couple of weeks ago) and took a selfie! The 2D-to-3D converter also played an important role in many of the subplots, and it ensured everything returned back to normal.
Val the stage manager [played by Sarah Woods] was also excellent in the many roles she played from postie to neighbour to mermaid.
Andy and Terry made the audience feel that the whole show was improvised from start to finish – very slick!
This is one of the cleverest, funniest and most interesting plays that I have seen, and so would recommend it to everyone.
