The 78-Storey Treehouse Returns to the Stage in June

The Treehouse is back and bigger than ever! The premiere stage adaptation of the bestselling children’s book The 78-Storey Treehouse will be on stage at the Empire Theatre on June 18-19.

With one performance at 6pm on Monday 18 June, and two on Tuesday 19 June, there are three opportunities to take in this award-winning story.

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 team behind the hit adaptations of The 13-, 26-, and 52-Storey Treehouses have come together once again to bring Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s bestseller The 78-Storey Treehouse to life on stage.  

The best-selling, award-winning series of books by much-loved duo Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton has inspired children across Australia to let their imaginations run wild; The 78-Storey Treehouse book was Australia’s fasting selling book ever on release!

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. The stage adaptations have also been incredibly successful throughout Australia, including The 52-Storey Treehouse winning the 2015 Sydney Theatre Award for Best Production for Children.

In this adaptation Andy and Terry are going to be famous! 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?
