ITSAZOO Productions is Hiring a Part Time Managing Producer
ITSAZOO Productions creates immersive, dynamic theatre events for daring audiences. We support this with four core values: Immersion, Risk, Fun, and Community. Whether it’s a fly-on-the-wall, immersive experience or a participatory, site specific event, we can create theatre for anyone, anytime, anywhere. We don’t want our audience to just watch the story. We want our audience to experience the world of the story; to live through it.
Founded in 2006, ITSAZOO is a Vancouver based company led by Artistic Director Sebastien Archibald with support from Artistic Associate (and founder) Chelsea Haberlin. We produce one full production and have 1-2 productions in development each year and our annual budget sits around $100,000.

Other Possible Responsibilities
ITSAZOO has always been a collectively managed organization led by multiple artistic leaders.
