The ORBIT Project is a supporters-funded initiative, where one production per year is directly funded through the contributions made by our ORBIT members’ subscription fees.

The ORBIT Project for 2018 is The Meteor Theatre’s annual kids show!
For the past two years, we have staged adaptations of well-known children’s stories to immense success.
This year, we are reaching out to children aged 5-16 in the Waikato to submit original short stories to be adapted into a comedic play for the July 2018 school holidays!

The story will be the inspiration for the 2018 July Meteor Kids Show, so it needs to be dramatic, exciting, completed, and meet the guidelines displayed below:

The cut-off date for submissions is March 10th, so get creating!
Please send stories or queries to
