Nanna-stasia is equal parts hilarious and touching.

The story of Eleanor Stankiewicz’s Nanna is the stuff of legend, and this show deserves to be seen, loved and remembered.

We laughed, ate Tim Tams, and even cried a little as Eleanor shared her story of her Nanna with passion, comedy, and love. 100% recommend this show, and 1000% recommend you take your own Nanna to it!!

My daughter is an actor, I know what goes into writing, producing and presenting something as polished as this one hour of supurb entertainment. Well done!

I LOVED this show so much I've already gone twice and am pretty sure I'm going to go a third time. It's such an emotional ride; I laughed, I cried, I felt all the things. Eleanor is an outstanding performer with an incredible depth, voice, and physicality, and there is just something about this piece that gets to the guts of being human, and the things our ancestors have gone through to allow us to live the lives we do. I'm sure the songs and the intertwining of the Anastasia film aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I can't stop thinking about it. It was moving and fun and lovely and beautiful and haunting and will stay with me for a long time. Call your grandmother.

This heartfelt and captivating story is sometimes joyous, sometimes sad. The performers comedic timing is on point and you will be enthralled by her storytelling abilities. For anyone who has ever wondered about the stories of their Nanna or loved sitting across from them having a cuppa or playing cards then this show is for you.

Great fringe show with a solid interesting story based on reality (inspired by fantasy). Eleanor has natural flair for sty telling and was so engaging to watch. She takes you on an epic journey with songs and switches between the different characters effortlessly. Highly recommend.

Caught this show at Sydney Fringe 2019. Equal parts a hilarious tribute to animated musicals and a poignant exploration of how family history shapes us. Well worth seeing at Fringeworld 2020. Better than the actual broadway production of Anastasia.

A truly beautiful show that effortlessly jumps from heartbreaking sadness to uplifting hope. Ele provides such a confident and commanding performance, and never leaves you in doubt as to whether this story means a lot to her.

This show was simple, professional, beautiful and wholesome. Eleanor is such a captivating storyteller and has a lovely singing voice. I am always amazed when a solo-show performer manages to keep the whole audience engaged for a whole show and Eleanor did just that. I laughed, I almost cried and now I want to give my Nanna a big hug.

A joyously touching piece of personal theatre. A beautiful tribute to family and to everyone's favourite non-Disney/Disney movie. Personal storytelling of the finest order.
