Diary of a Wombat takes to the big stage

The naughtiest wombat in Australia will visit Wodonga this week to delight children and parents alike with a live stage version of a classic childhood tale.

On Monday morning, Wodonga Library’s Mrs Mac hosted a special storytime of The Diary of a Wombat ahead of live performances on Thursday at 6pm and Friday at 10.30am.

Mothball, the mischievous star of The Diary of a Wombat, will come to life across the shows at The Cube Wodonga.

Company Monkey Baa uses a mix of live music and puppetry to bring Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s tale to life. The live performance show stars Michael Cullen, Julia Ohannessian and Shondelle Pratt with cellist Mary Rapp also acting as the voice of Mothball.
