REGENT THEATRE STUDIO SESSIONS
LAND OF THE LONG LONG DRIVE
Wētā, Tuna and Kārearea are mates of Gary the Glowworm, and are traveling to attend his rave in the cave birthday party. The friends face a number of trials on the road, and learn that despite their differences, they can achieve their goals by working together! Land of the Long Long Drive is a story that has been “Loved by…audience[s] from tots to grandparents” (Deborah Rea, Theatreview).
A tale for Kiwi kids, featuring iconic NZ creatures, landscapes and fresh waiata by NZ singer-songwriter Benny Tipene. Winner of the 3–8-year-old section of Playmarket’s Plays for the Young Competition, Land of the Long Long Drive brings you a laugh out loud, inspiring adventure of three unlikely heroes.
This show jumps into life with beautiful costumes from Gridley by Victoria, Costumier for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, and support from Capital E National Theatre for Children through their Creative Residency programme.

OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS

We pride ourselves on being one of the most accessible venues in the city. We have flat access through the studio doors. Taxis can drop off and pick up patrons from outside the front of the theatre and we can order a taxi for you after the show. There are accessible toilets and lift access to the studio. If you have any concerns or questions regarding accessing the studio please get in touch with our friendly staff.
Our bar has a selection of New Zealand wines and beers as well as juices, water and light snacks. The bars will be closed five minutes before the show’s published start time.
- Please turn off all your electronic devices before you come into the auditorium.
- If you have taken snacks from our bar back to your seat, try not to rustle when the house lights go down.
- If you are late to a show, get comfortable in our bar area until we can turn the house lights back on so you can find your seat.
- Camera flashes occasionally make performers stumble – over their lines or their feet – so we prefer that you don’t use flash (or any other) photography.
- Please keep your feet on the floor – someone counting the beat on the back of your seat can be distracting.
- Dancing in the aisles sounds like fun but it might make our Circle collapse. If you really need to dance (and it’s the right sort of show), please book seats in the Stalls or make your way out to the foyer.
- We encourage you to introduce your children to the arts, but please also teach them to watch and listen quietly and peacefully.
