Yes! Anyone and everyone is welcome to Play Play. The show has been made specifically for 3-4 year olds but we think everyone will enjoy it! Every one will need their own ticket except babies in arms who get to come for free.
About the show
Look what my body can do!
PLAY PLAY is an uplifting theatre show for preschoolers and their grownups focusing on body positivity and play.
Two performers explore every day activities through movement and music, making the familiar feel like a great adventure!
Current research shows how vital play is for young children. PLAY PLAY presents a positive, nurturing approach to physical play, looking at the amazing things our bodies can do. PLAY PLAY provides a platform for little ones and their grown ups to connect with their bodies in a creative way and focuses not on size and shape but on imagination and possibilities.
Come and play!

“This sweet, succinct wee show makes us laugh out loud, dance in our seats and want to join in the Play. It’s the perfect blend of ridiculous and miraculous.”Theatreview, New Zealand
“Play Play is a real delight. It charms the adults, engages the children, and works to build the audiences of the future.”Theatreview, New Zealand
“A show that children can enjoy and bring their whole selves to.”Theatreview, New Zealand
“Play Play is the second show from Cubbin Theatre Company, a group that creates theatrical experiences for the very young. Their first show, Up and Away, was a delightful performance for infants. This production, directed again by Mel Luckman, is aimed at three to four year olds (and their adults), and it offers an energetic and playful experience that emphasises movement and creativity.”Theatreview, New Zealand
“The magical play between performers and amplified sounds is satisfying and mysterious for the audience young and old.”Theatreview, New Zealand
“The intimate setting enabled some beautiful interactions that I can well imagine will have a lasting positive impression.”
“Push and pull, fall and rebound, flow and fun, through mime, humour, dance and music. These are skillfully blended into a perfectly timed, tightly choreographed whole.”
“Play Play is whimsical and imaginative with moments of delight and surprise that have the audience screeching.”
The performance lasts approximately 30 minutes plus time for a wee play afterwards.
You and your child can sit on the floor near the playing space, or there will be some comfy chairs for those who don’t want to sit on the floor.
No! We’re really keen to encourage the children to respond however they like.
There is an element of observation and listening to Play Play but however children wish to respond will be welcomed. That’s part of the excitement of live theatre!
When you arrive at the Civic Theatre you will be met by our Front of House team who will show you how to get to the Safari Room.
Absolutely! You are welcome to come and go from the space whenever you wish during the performance.
Yes. One bum, one ticket! Babes-in-arms can come for no charge. If your child is able to walk into the theatre by themselves then they need a ticket.
The Civic Theatre is on the corner of Queen St and Wellesley St Right next to Aotea Square.
We hope so! If you have any other queries or concerns please contact our friendly team at firstname.lastname@example.org
