Do Teachers or chaperones come free?
No. Because we offer a subsidized pricing to schools you pay for each seat. You may bring as many or as few chaperones and teachers as you feel you need.
Can I buy a ticket at the door?
We prefer that all needed seating is arranged and paid for prior to the day of the performance, due to the fact that there may be limited seating.
If there are seats available, we will work to accommodate – the admittance fee will have to be paid to the box office at intermission.
Do I have to be a school to book a performance?
We accept any group who acts like an education group; Preschools, Joy Schools, Home School Groups. We just ask that payments be made as a group and we have one contact working with The Theatre on the group’s reservation.
Where do we park?
We have our own private parking lots on both North & South sides of the theatre building. There is also plentiful parking along State Street.
Is the play the same as the book?
Usually we follow the same story line as a book or stories. Sometimes there are several versions of a story which can be similar, but also very different. If it is a piece of classical literature such as Sleeping Beauty, the script will be based on the story line as there is no definitive book or version of the story. Teaching students about the story or related topics will enhance a student’s experience at our theatre, so we encourage doing so even if there is some variation.
What age is appropriate?
Preschool to 6th grade and beyond. Our plays are written specifically for children, so they are appropriate for any age. Babes in arms are not admitted.
An important part of our School Performances is to introduce children to theatre. Please help us teach children about appropriate theatre behavior such as;
Arriving to the theatre on time
Visit the restroom before the performance starts
Turning off electronics
Not to speak during the play
Not to take pictures during the play
Remain seated for the entire play
Not to put their feet on the seats in front of them
DO clap at the end of acts
DO laugh when the play is funny
What intermission is for and how to behave during that time.
Children will need to use the restroom during intermission, but it is also important to have a timely intermission - please help us with this by encouraging the children to use the restroom before they leave school and by helping us at the theatre to move them in and out of restrooms quickly.
Do you have deaf interpreters/wheel chair access?
If your school needs an interpreter, please let us know ahead of time to make arrangements.
We do have wheel chair access, please tell the theatre in advance so we can have the wheel chair seating available.
If there are other special needs please inform the theatre in advance.
Where will we be sitting?
