Q&A and Workshops

A post show question & answer session with the actors may be held, at no cost, after each
performance (time allowing). In addition to the performance, a workshop with students is
available and is designed to fit into a class period. Workshops focus on topics relevant to the
production and enhance the students’ learning experience through the exploration of acting, text analysis, and character development. Workshops can accommodate up to 30 participants, may require a separate location (depending upon the performance space), and are available at an additional cost of $150 per workshop.

Space & Performance Requirements

All performances require an auditorium, theater, or other space which accommodates groups (gymnasiums and cafeterias work well). The minimum space requirement is 20’ wide x 30’ deep x 12’ high. A minimum of one hour for set-up is required prior to the performance. The play may be performed twice during a school day. Capacity for each performance is 400 students. An additional $50/100 students will be added for audiences exceeding 400. Maximum audience attendance per performance is 550.
