From a teacher who just saw Possum Magic in Sydney - "I thought the show was absolutely fantastic! The students have not stopped talking about it, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The clear favourite was the dancing snake! I particularly liked how the students were actively involved during the performance (e.g. getting up to do the 'Billabong Bounce'). The parent helpers who accompanied us have all commented about how engaged the children were throughout the performance." R. Vecchio-Ruggieri, St Agnes Matraville, May 2013
