Our Three-Step Guide to putting Professional Theatre in Your School:

Step 1. Go to Schools Tour. Have a look at the Tour Calendar and see where we’ll be when. Fill out the form or send us an email – – and we will arrange a day and time. (bookings made in 2015 are entitled to an early bird discount of $100).
Step 2. In the New Year, we contact you (again) re: your booking info.  Your deposit of  $250.00 is requested then as confirmation.
Step 3. We arrive and perform at your school. Final payment of $500 is due AFTER the performance. ($650 if your school booked in 2016)

It’s  that easy. And we’re keen to be a part of your drama programme.
