IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Only pre-walking babies (0-18 months approx) may attend, accompanied by a caregiver. Due to the nature of the performance, babies who are walking cannot be admitted.It's important the babies feel totally relaxed during the performance, which is why there is no option to bring older siblings or other children along. The babies are our priority and we don’t want our very youngest audience members to be overwhelmed by children who might be slightly too old for the performance.Due to space restrictions, only one caregiver per baby can be admitted into the tent area. Other adults may purchase an ‘observer seat’ if they wish to attend (seated directly behind your family, just not on the floor).

Up and Away is a playful and gentle theatrical performance created exclusively for babies. Two performers interweave elements of theatre, play and live music in a half-hour performance, which culminates in free play and exploration-time for baby audience members.
Up and Away is performed in a cosy, purpose-made tent.
Audience numbers are limited to a small group, and only pre-walking babies may attend. This results in a calm, safe atmosphere and optimal conditions for babies to engage in the performance, which is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
Up and Away is performed by Amy Straker and Hannah Wheeler and directed by Melanie Luckman.
Up and Away has been developed in consultation with a speech-language therapist, in accordance with current neuroscientific research.
Developed in partnership with the Isaac Theatre Royal’s Company in Residence programme, Christchurch and supported by Creative New Zealand.
