“The kids were enthralled by the story and mesmerized by the puppetry; they were glued to Gran from go, laughed all the way and were left in wonder and awe of the magic bag!” – Parent review

GRAN’S BAG is a heartwarming and funny show by Greg Lissaman and Chrissie Shaw
which plays twice daily in the first week of the September school holidays. Full of wonderful songs and stories as well as endearing puppets, it will captivate kiddies (and their grans!)

When Gran comes to visit, she brings her beautiful big red bag. It is a treasure trove of secrets and small delights. All sorts of surprises emerge, and lots of great stories. The best story of all is about how Gran found her magic carpet bag – or did the bag find her?

Chrissie Shaw (Bijou, Flotsam and Jetsam, A Sweeter Fern – That’s Red!) brings the tale to life as the larger than life Gran and pulls the entire show out of her giant red handbag – which seems to have a life of its own.

With storytelling, songs, and puppetry, Gran takes us on a fun adventure full of twists and turns.

You never know where the story will go next.
