Me and My Nana (Canterbury, New Zealand)
1 Jan 2020 - 31 Dec 2021
What surprises has Nana got up her sleeve?
Both joy and tenderness are discovered between grandmother and grandchild in this theatrical experience for preschoolers 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.
DEVELOPMENT TO DATE
In June/July 2019 Cubbin Theatre Company, supported by the Christchurch City Council, held morning teas with grandparents to talk with them about what it means to be a grandparent and explore the special relationship.
The stories and memories that were shared during these morning teas were then formed into a showing that was presented back to the workshop participants and their grandchildren to great success.
Me and My Nana is being developed ahead of a season of 8 performances at Little Andromeda pop-up venue in central Christchurch, November 2019.
