For twenty years I’ve talked about politics and social issues and shared insights into my personal experiences, but this is one journey where I’ve had to keep you locked out.

Tonight’s NORPA performance at Lismore City Hall of a play based on the popular children’s novel ‘The 26-Storey Treehouse’ has been sold out.

Hundreds of primary-school students throughout the northern rivers will also enjoy a couple of matinee performances today of the play, adapted from the hilarious Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton novel.

The production is being supported by The Macadamia Castle at Knockrow, where school children yesterday were given a sneak preview when some of the cast of the show  entertained them.

A NORPA spokesperson told Echonetdaily that despite the show being sold out, ‘kids should not despair’ as the two popular childrens-book authors will be attending the Byron Bay Writers Festival’s Kids Big Day Out session on August 9.

The CDP production was adapted  by award-winning playwright and author Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas) and under the creative guidance of NORPA’s artistic director Julian Louis.
