We ask for a $750 deposit once the contract is received. Final balance for the assembly is due one week before the performance. This deposit covers everything that happens before the day of assembly - booking your show, contracts, invoices, reading your packets, turning stories into plays, actor rehearsals, etc. It is nonrefundable. Should your deposit be late without prior arrangement, a $250 penalty will be incurred and due with final balance. The remaining balance due for each invoice shall be payable one week before the performance is scheduled, unless prior arrangements have been made.
A fee of $5/mile (one way) is applied to all assemblies. The distance is calculated from our office in Placentia, CA. You may not have paid this fee in the past - but due to raising gas prices, we need to make sure our actors are being paid for their travel and not losing money in the process. For schools over 75 miles from our office, an additional $200 hotel fee is incurred.
We need an hour between the start of each scheduled assembly - they run 45 minutes long, and our performers need 15 minutes before the next one starts. (ex: 9:00AM, 10:00AM) If assemblies are scheduled longer than an hour apart, a wait fee of $1 will be applied for each minute (ex: An assembly at 9:00AM and 10:30AM. 30 extra minutes = $30).
We work with over 500 schools a year, and we completely understand the different channels that must be reached before we're paid. If there's ever any delay, we just ask that you keep in clear communication with us. While we don’t accept credit cards, we do take PayPal & Venmo. Let us know if this is an easier way to pay.
While we do allow outdoor performances, the request must be made in writing prior to the show. There is a $150 fee that goes directly to our actors, as it is more strenuous to perform outside versus inside. The school must provide power to our sound equipment (microphone and keyboard).
