COMMUNICATION IS EVERYTHING
Our Learning Library shows are perfect for Kindergarten through 5th Grade. While students younger or older will likely enjoy the shows, our target audience is K-5th and we develop a study guide for each show that aligns with the AKS for these grades.
We have performances Monday through Friday at 10am and 11:45am.
We ask you to arrive 15 minutes before your show time in order to allow seating. If you are not able to arrive on time, we may have to cut part of the show or the educational discussions, and we hate for that to happen to your students.
The performance is about an hour with pre and post-show discussions. In order to make the most out of your experience, we include a pre-show introduction to the theatre and theatre etiquette, as well as a post-show discussion with the actors that helps students discover the magic of theatre and learn about all the different careers that go into making a performance happen.
Our space can seat 250 people (200 in the main floor and 50 in the balcony). While we will make every effort to host your students on one day, as time goes on and shows sell out we may need to split your group into two days.
That’s fine! We just need to know upfront. We have space for wheelchairs and companions. We can make sure to save spaces at the front for ASL students and interpreters. We can set aside special seating if you have a small Special Education class that needs to be localized or has extra adults. But we must know ahead of time to make these arrangements. Once we have begun seating students, we can not rearrange.
Tickets are $7 per person. We do offer a Title I rate of $6 per person. In some cases, we are also able to assist with bus funding for Title I Schools.
We offer 1 free adult ticket for every 10 student tickets. This ticket can be used by a teacher, parapro, bus driver, chaperone - it’s up to you. We do round up, so if you have 47 students we would give you 5 free adults.
Through the years we have found that the best ratio for field trips in our space really is 1:10. However, additional adults may come at the same rate as the students, $7 (or $6 for a Title I School). All parents/guardians who want to attend must go through you: they must pay you and be included in your numbers.
No, we can not sell individual tickets. All parents/guardians who want to attend must go through you: they must pay you and be included in your numbers.
No, we can not sell individual tickets, even at the door. All parents/guardians who want to attend must go through you: they must pay you and be included in your numbers.
No. We consider your reservation complete when we receive a signed contract back. We then need a final headcount and payment 2 weeks before your performance.
We can accept a check from the school or any major credit card. We can work directly with your school’s bookkeeper, providing them an invoice and itemized receipt, and calling them for payment.
We expect numbers to change a little between time of booking and the performance date. We request a final headcount and payment 2 weeks before your performance.
We never want to exclude any of your students! Just reach out to us and if we still have room we will be happy to add them! If your numbers drop, that is good for us to know, too; however, we can not issue refunds for unused tickets.
While incredibly rare, we have had to cancel shows in the past due to ice, snow, and other weather conditions. If this happens we will make every effort to reschedule your group to another day; in the past we have even added performances in cases like this. If there is no other day for us to accommodate your group, we will be able to refund you.
We do not have a space on-site that can accommodate lunches, but many schools choose to enjoy a picnic lunch on either the Lawrenceville Lawn or the Historic Courthouse Lawn, both of which are just a short block away from the theatre.
We do not have food available for these performances, but we do offer complimentary coffee to the adults.
