The 13-Story Treehouse

by CDP Theatre Producers of Sydney, Australia

Grades 1-6

Who wouldn’t want to live in a treehouse? Especially a 13-story treehouse that has everything—a bowling alley, a secret underground laboratory, and self-making beds, for starters! Andy and Terry live there, make stories together, and have a series of silly adventures. They forgot to write the play! And where will they find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys, and a giant gorilla?! This madcap New York Times Bestseller comes to life on stage with plenty of action, puppetry, music, and animation.
