Frequently Asked Questions

+ What is your service area?

Our service area is Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle & Lower Hunter region.

+ I'd like to book multiple sessions in a single day

That's great! Using the booking form, select the time you'd like the first session to start, and there will be an opportunity to list all preferred session times at a later step of the booking process. If you prefer, you can contact us at any time and we can make the booking for you.

+ Can I book more than one type of show in a single day?

Yes! For complex bookings with multiple shows, or bookings that span multiple days, we'll need to make the booking for you. Please contact us and we'll be glad to help. Note we may need some changeover time in between each type of show. In some cases we may be able to set up both shows beforehand (this may require some extra tables).

+ I can't find a suitable date or time using your booking form

We may still be able to accommodate you, so please contact us to discuss.

+ Do you have a maximum audience size?

For most venues, such as school halls, 3-5 classes per show is ideal. If your venue is suitable, we can certainly perform the show to a larger audience. For specially designed theatres, tiered learning spaces or performance auditoriums, you are welcome to fill your venue to capacity. You may consider breaking the large group up into two smaller groups to give your students a better experience, but this is up to you.

+ Can I make a booking for a weekend or public holiday?

In general, no, but please contact us to discuss.

+ Can you supply risk assessments, insurance details and working with children checks?

Yes, your booking confirmation will include a link to downlaod these documents. If you require them in advance, please contact us and we'll email them to you.
