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.
