How can we opt out of paying travel fees?

There are several ways to reduce or waive travel fees:

  1. Find a nearby school to share the day . . .and split the travel between both schools.
  2. Find a nearby school to tag along the day before or after to reduce your travel fee.
  3. Host an Amazing Teacher Book Sale (every $1 in sales covers a $1 in travel).

Can we schedule two different programs on the same day?

Maybe!  It really depends on the timing and the location of the performances.   If you schedule a half-day, for example, there is not enough time to setup one show, perform, pack up, change costumes and then repeat the process.  However, if you schedule a full-day or a half-day in the afternoon and an evening program, hosting two different programs is doable.  Call us for details.

How many students can participate in the Amazing Teacher assemblies?

LaughOutLoudFunny2We have performed for groups as small as 25 and as large as 1200.  For educational significance, we suggest 250-300 students as a maximum number per presentation.  If you have more than 150 students, we recommend a raised platform/stage or elevated seating (bleachers) and/or multiple presentations.

Do we need to provide a P.A. (Public Address) System?

While in some venues this can be helpful, we usually provide our own P.A. system including wireless a microphone.  Occasionally, Steve may choose to plug his mic or music  into a fixed P.A. system, but this is not required.

What do you need our school/library to provide?

Steve  brings most everything necessary to make your event a success:  including a theatrical backdrop (time and space permitting), a professional PA system, a  custom collection of props, puppets, and much more!

All you need to provide is a place to perform (with a power source nearby), three identical adult-size chairs, and a small table.

If you have a clear stage or raised platform with steps, this is always a plus, but is not required.

Depending upon the location of the performing area, we might request two or three older students to help unload and load the equipment.  It is ideal to unload near the performing area where equipment can be rolled into place (i.e. no steps).

Will you modify a program or customize a program at our request?

Certainly, as long as the changes do not impact the educational significance of the program.  Since each of our programs are written like a one-act play, major changes can disrupt the flow and value of the presentation.  This said, with enough advance notice, we can often create a custom themed program using elements from several existing programs.  Call us for details.

Is it best to divide our students by grade level?

Educationally this is a wise decision as it allows us to present age-appropriate materials.  However, from a practical standpoint, we know this is not always possible, nor is it required.

Ideal divisions for elementary are primary (K-2) and intermediate (3-5).  For middle school and high school programs there is not a preferred grouping.
