Length of program: 45 minutes
Space / technical requirements:

Thank you in advance for making the following preparations for your program:

1. We arrive 2 hours before the first show to load in and set up. Please assign a contact
person and/or custodian to meet our team so that we can load into your building right
away. It will take 30 minutes to unload the van, and then we will move the van to your designated parking area.

2. Make your cafeteria/auditorium space ready by clearing your stage completely. We have a large set and will use the entire stage area.

3. If you have windows in your cafeteria, please use black craft paper to block outside light. Even if you have blinds on the windows, use the craft paper under the blinds. We are using black light in the show, and the effects won’t work unless your room is dark.

4. We want your students to have an extraordinary experience. If possible, we prefer for the kids to be seated on the floor, centered in front of the stage for the best sight lines. If you cannot have the tables moved for the kids to sit on the floor, the second option is to push tables toward the center so that no one is sitting too far to the right or the left of the stage.

5. We appreciate your feedback and ask for 5th grade teachers and students to take a brief survey to help us make this program even better.

6. Our team will need to be directed to the appropriate adult restrooms so that they can change into costumes before the show.
