we love contributions

olio is a database, and databases need information. If you’re involved in New Zealand theatre in any way, we want to talk to you!

It’s easy to contribute to olio and help us reach our goal of being a complete record of current and past productions in your area.

it’s as easy as email

In the future you’ll be able to manage your own profile and add information yourself. For now however, we’ll handle all that for you.

All you need to do is take photos of a programme and email them to us. Alternatively if a full cast and crew list is already available on the theatre’s official website, just send us the link instead.

send us your photos

People and productions have their own photos. They can even have galleries. If you want to fill in some blanks or add to galleries then please note the following image requirements:

  • Photos must be at least 900 pixels wide, but ideally they will be at least 2,700 pixels wide. This website is optimised for HD screens, so the larger the better.
  • Profile pictures are square. We can do the cropping for you. Additional images need not be square, however.
  • Show and Production primary pictures should be portrait and will be cropped to a 2x3 ratio. Additional images are not affected.
  • We reserve the right to choose not to use one or more of the images you send us, but we’ll chat with you about it first.

parterships are welcome

We’d love to partner with theatre companies to load up your historical shows and add new ones as they come up.

In the future, theatre companies will be able to claim their own page and manage shows they have produced. For now, we can add the information for you.

If you’d like to work with us to make olio great, please email us.
