TiNY – First baby show in South Africa to be performed at Magnet Theatre!


Venue: Magnet Theatre

In October 2015, with support from the SA-UK Seasons 2014&2015, Magnet Theatre will host Replay Theatre Company from Dublin, Ireland, for a week-long series of workshops and training for The Magnet Early Years Theatre Company (supported by the NAC flagship grant). Replay will bring their work TiNY with them as an example of theatre for the 0 -12 months age group.

Small enough to pop up in a day nursery, TiNY comes with its own magical theatre space and is performed to just a few babies at a time. Full of magical sounds, lights and textures, TiNY takes the very youngest audience members on a fantastical journey full of wonder and surprises! Replay has been invited to bring TiNY to Cape Town to be the first ever baby show in South Africa and a catalyst for the beginning of a baby theatre movement by South African artists. On Saturday 10 October 2015, Magnet Theatre will host two performances of TiNY that are open to the public. These performances will be followed by a presentation and discussion with the TiNY cast. Join us and you can be part of a very exciting development in South African theatre!


“As a Trainee Educational Psychologist I love the shows you do. You guys really take into account child development within your work. Marie Hill, Doctorate in Educational, Child and Adolescent Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast

“Neuroscience has proven that the first three years of life don’t just affect our behaviour, they actually change how our brains are formed. As developmental psychologist Dr Suzanne Zeedyk observes: “The evidence about the importance of children’s early experiences is pouring out of scientific labs.” Anna Newell, Artistic Director of Replay Theatre Company quoted in The Guardian’s article: To the theatre born: why babies need the arts
