FAQs

Can I bring my older children?

Yes! Anyone and everyone is welcome to Play Play. The show has been made specifically for 3-4 your olds but we think everyone will enjoy it! Every one will need their own ticket expect babes-in-arms who get to come for free.

How long is the show?

The performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.

Where will we sit?

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.

Does my child need to sit still and be quiet?

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!

Where is the Gloucester Room?

When you arrive at the Isaac Theatre Royal you will be met by our Front of House staff who will show you how to get up to the Gloucester Room on the first floor. There is a lift available.

I'm running late! Can I come in after the start time?

Absolutely! You will be welcome to come and go from the space whenever you wish during the performance.

Do I need to buy two tickets for me and my child?

Yes. One bum, one ticket! Babes-in-arms can come for no charge.

Where is the venue and where will I park?

The Isaac Theatre Royal is on Gloucester Street, right next to New Regent Street, just across from the Turanga (the new library) and a quick walk from the Margaret Mahy Playground. There are plenty of paid carparks around the corner of Gloucester and Manchester Streets.

We hope so! If you have any other queries or concerns please contact our friendly team at hello@cubbin.co.nz
