I am one of the producers at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. My major responsibility is the development and delivery of theatre productions for children that run during school holiday periods. In 2009 I wrote a show to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy. It featured the Museum mascots Zoe & Cogs. Cogs, a robot who lives in the Museum, has also starred in his own show that called "Cogs and the Dragon" - http://play.powerhousemuseum.com/dragonshow/ This show introduced preschool aged children to the scientific method and observation skills.
Riding on the success of these productions the Museum would like to produce a 30 minute performance featuring Cogs and his love of chemistry (concept currently being developed). The show will be aimed at children under the age of 8 which is our core holiday audience. It will premiere at the Museum and should suitable funding be sought it will tour NSW.
