Theatre for the Very Young

Grandparents: We need you!

During June 2019 we will be holding special morning teas in the Christchurch community as we begin to create a wondrous new show for preschoolers.

We want grandparents (and aunties, uncles, special friends etc) and grandchildren to come along, have some morning tea, a little play and a chat with us about what you love about your relationship.

These sessions are FREE and will help us gather material that will go towards making our new show. You’ll then be invited to a special private showing of a small piece of the work a few weeks later with a chance to give feedback if you wish.

You can book your free space here.

All information will be confidential. Some photography or filming may occur but we will seek your permission before we do this.

Please note this is not a performance by Cubbin.

Kia ora! Hello!


We are Hannah, Mel and Amy, the founding members of Cubbin Theatre Company. All three of us are professional theatre practitioners and our passion is making theatre for the very young.

We are based in beautiful and creative Christchurch, in the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand.
We founded Cubbin in 2018, spurred on by our ardent desire to make high quality, playful theatre for under-fives.
We hold the value of respect very closely to our hearts; respect for our audience and respect for the importance of children’s theatre.
Our desire is to bring our audience wonder and intrigue, through captivating theatrical experiences which can be treasured forever.
We are honoured to share our dream with you and your child.
