Job details

Work type
Part time employment, Contract, Fixed Term
Work classification
Technical Staff & Logistics, Education & Development, Performing Arts


Nanogirl™, our science superhero, engineers her way in and out of trouble using science, tech and engineering skills.  

Since 2016, Nanogirl has appeared on stages around New Zealand in ‘Nanogirl Live!’ – story-driven, explosive live science shows created for family audiences, specifically aimed at inspiring young people to think positively about STEM, and believe in their own abilities to take part in STEM day to day.

We are planning our fifth national tour of New Zealand and are looking for brilliant theatre production professionals to join the project.

We are seeking one or more partners (either individuals or companies) to work with us on the planning and production of our New Zealand tour later this year.  Specifically, we are looking for a Tour Producer (working directly with our internal staff to pull the project together), a Production & Technical Manager (managing venue relationships, technical requirements etc), and touring technical crew (lighting, sound / AV, stage management).


Nanogirl Live! shows combine live science demonstrations, strong narrative storylines, physical comedy and high production values to create an ‘edutainment’ experience like no other.  It’s like science, technology and engineering meets pantomime, with explosions.

We are crazy passionate about theatre and live performance, both as an art form and as an incredibly powerful way to share stories and knowledge.  We measure the impact of everything we do, and have proven the effectiveness of our work to change hearts.  This is an important and urgent mission – as well as a great night out for families around the country!
