These are interactive performance programs so performance times may vary based on the age and participation level of each audience. 

It is best to leave 60 minutes open for all shows that include 

children ages 2-8. 

For grades Pre-K, K and 1st a window of 50 minutes is best. 

Please remember to allow 10-15 minutes extra for seating and departure.

If you need your programs shortened to accommodate lunch time or class schedules please make this clear in advance so I have time to arrange your programs properly. 

Other Fees That May Apply:

Hotel Fee: ($45.00 in most areas) may apply to programs requiring an overnight stay.

I travel to schools worldwide so travel fees may apply.

Travel Fees when traveling by car: Due to the varying distances of school locations a travel fee based on mileage from my location to yours will apply to all program packages. 

Travel fees may be reduced or waived if I am already near your location or if you book or help book multiple days in your area. 

Travel fees will be calculated using a mileage rate from McCormick, SC. 

Contact me for exact pricing and/or the possibility of reducing or waiving travel fees.

Travel by air will be at the lowest possible fare and will be reduced with multiple bookings in your area.
