The 13-Storey Treehouse
Tuesday 15th - Sunday 20th July, The State Theatre of WA.
Tickets available from Ticketek

Would you please welcome to the stage... Andy and Terry!
Yes that's right. Andy Griffiths' and Terry Denton's best-selling book, the one and only, super-famous, ultra-brilliant The 13-Storey Treehouse has been turned into an equally brilliant show for the theatre. AND YOU'RE INVITED!
Curtain up! Today's the day. There's just one problem. They forgot to write it! And where will they find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys, and a giant gorilla? Luckily the theatre has an extensive prop and costume collection and some very impressive stage technology.
Direct from its sell-out premiere season at the Sydney Opera House and adapted by Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas), The 13-Storey Treehouse is brought to life by a seriously funny cast and magical moments of theatrical wizardry.
Just remember to "USE YOUR IMAGINATION!"

Put your dancing shoes on for Dora’s Dance Party because Dora needs you to spin, shake, wiggle, jump and clap your hands with her. This is a dance filled adventure as we march past ants, wiggle around spiders, slither through snakes, dance like a fish, move like you have ants in your pants and do our favourite pirate dance.

Baby Bungy's
Monday 7th July - Sunday 13th July. Centre Court. Cost $10 for 4 minutes.

Are you board with the passive participation that other fun park rides offer? Look no further. Imagine jumping up to 7 metres into the air off a trampoline, looking down on the crowd from over 2 storeys up. Using multiple bungy cords the traditional trampoline is super boosted to give a gravity defying ride, providing all the adrenaline of bungy jumping but none of the risks.
Jumpers are able to reach heights that would be impossible using a trampoline alone, secured and safe in their adjustable purpose built harness they are free to experiment with acrobatic movements or to simply jump as high as they can. The rapid rate at which confidence sky rockets after your first double somersaults creates a contagious buzz between both participants and spectators. Using the Bungy Dome gives you an empowering and euphoric feeling of defying gravity and at the same time trains and tunes bodily coordination.
