If you think one of our shows might be of interest to your school, please call for a FREE information kit, which will include brochures, posters, photos, and a full report all about our shows for schools (with many references, show descriptions, and fees).
P.S. * HOT TIP! * – Although it's true that we can sometimes help last minute, with only a few weeks notice, we recommend reserving your date and show times at least 3 to 6 months in advance. To avoid disappointment, some of our long-time customers finalize their details very early (9 to 12 months, or more, in advance)! Call today.
