Me and My Nana

About the show

We’re visiting Nana today!

What surprises has she got up her sleeve? Perhaps a magical stick, some dancing shoes, a special ribbon and a duck that goes… moo?

Joyful surprises are discovered alongside tender moments between a grandmother and her grandchild as they navigate a day together in this theatrical experience for preschoolers and their grownups.

Created from workshops with real grandparents in the Christchurch community, Me and My Nana is brought to life by Cubbin Theatre Company. This lively story, told with clever props, simple language and nostalgic tunes, celebrates the unique love children share with their grandparents.

Everyone is welcome to Me and My Nana. It has been created mainly for children aged 1-5 and their grown-ups.

“…gentle, whimsical and wholesome – everything one would want for a show designed for under 5s…”

“…love, play and the joy of discovery are palpable..”

“The songs, strums and snare of the two musicians…act mostly as a soundtrack. At times the soaring voices are so sweet we have to look beyond the actors to these songbirds. Oh to sing like that, to offer such gifts…”
