Price

$550 per show

capacity

For most venues, such as school halls, a maximum of 100 children 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.
