Bring Carousel Players to Your School
Book Performances for your School
Preparing for Our Visit
Below is the structure we follow in bringing theatre to your students. A copy of this list will be sent to all schools that book a show.
We will arrive approximately 75 minutes prior to the performance. At the time of our arrival we will need free and exclusive access to the gym. We also ask that any gates, chains, doors, etc., on route to the gym be unlocked.
We do not require student helpers and request that there are no students in the gym during our set-up and tear-down time.
Performance Area and Seating
We require a performance area with 25′ x 25′ of floor space and a minimum ceiling height of 12′.
We require a clean floor, cleared of all equipment with the basketball nets raised if possible.
Students will be seated on the floor.
We require chairs or benches in the gym for seating for teachers and guests. These can be left to the side for us to set up on the performance day.
We will need 2 dressing rooms, gym change rooms, or other suitable changing area. If possible, this room should be locked during the presentation.
Bells, Announcements, Noises
If possible, the bells and/or announcements should be turned off in the gym for the duration of the performance.
Also if possible, any overhead fans should be turned off.
If a neighbouring school will be attending the performance we ask that their students be at your school 15 minutes prior to the performance. Please make sure that we are aware if another school is attending.
During the play NO PHOTOGRAPHS may be taken.
If your school is interested in having any photos taken when the play is finished, our Stage Manager would be happy to arrange for any photos.
Please, NO VIDEO RECORDING at any time.
