Looking for new scriptwriters
The Iziko Planetarium in Cape Town is looking for scripts to use in planetarium shows. If any ASSA members are interested in turning good ideas into a suitable script, which could possibly be used in a planetarium show, we are interested in making contact with you.
Planetarium shows need to have both an education and entertainment component, the end result would be to promote an interest in science (no illustrated lectures!). Before you embark on a script of epic proportions, planetarium staff will explain, preferably through a visit to our facility, the medium of presentation and all the necessary equipment available to turn your script into a professional production. We would also require a brief synopsis of your proposed script.
Scripts fall loosely into three categories: preprimary (ages 4–8), primary (ages 9–13) and teenagers & adults (14 and up).
Selected scripts would be purchased at a reasonable fee if selected for production.
Contact details: Theo Ferreira or Margie Walter, tel. 021-4813900, fax 021-4813990, e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] or [email@example.com].
