STILES & DREWE’S GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS
Music by George Stiles
Book and Lyrics by Anthony Drewe


From George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the musical team that take Mary Poppins from the screen to the stage, comes a bear-sized helping of music and mayhem for students this winter at Lawrenceville Arts Center. Classic fairytale turned modern musical, Goldilocks and The Three Bears teaches us to keep our hands off others belongings or there will be consequences to “bear.” It’s the first Aurora Educational production on the new Clyde & Sandra Grand Stage. This field trip is “just right” for elementary school students with a story they know and love.


Performances will take place at the Lawrenceville Arts Center in the Clyde & Sandra Strickland Grand Stage

                                                                                  How long are the performances?

                                                                                   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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  How many people can you accommodate?

                                                                                  Our space can seat 430 people. 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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What if we have wheelchairs in our group or other special needs?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  How much are tickets?

                                                                                  Tickets are $7 per person. We do offer a Title I rate of $6 per person.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What about adults?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What if we want to bring more 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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  Can I have my parents call you to purchase tickets?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  Can my parents buy tickets at the door?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  Do we have to pay right away?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What forms of payment do you accept?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What if my numbers change after initial booking?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What if my numbers change after we give you our final headcount & pay?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                   

                                                                                  What if my show is canceled?

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                  You are welcome to use our facilities for a post-show picnic lunch! We have many spaces for students to sit on the floor and enjoy their lunch – picnic style! Many schools also 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 and tea to the adults.
