Program Fees


School Assemblies are billed by the half day or day, not by the number of presentations. This allows you to maximize the educational impact of our programs, by scheduling smaller groups. We have found that our programs work best in groups up to 150, although we can handle up to 500 if a riser is available.

Full Day

The fees for the presentations are $850 per full day. A full day can be split between two schools at no additional charge. Thus you could have a presentation at one school in the morning and a different school in the afternoon. Each school would pay one half of the fee ($425 ea.). This will allow each school either one or two programs. If the presenter is at a single school for the entire day, he or she can present as many as 5 presentations in a day.

In addition, if you are somewhat flexible in your scheduling, we can help you save even more money. Ask about options when you call. For example, there is a 10% discount on programs performed in August or September.

Half Day

Fees for a half-day are $525. Finding a nearby school to take the other half-day can reduce the fee to $425. The presenter can make 1 or 2 presentations in a half-day program.

Depending upon where your school or library is located we are prepared to waive some or even the entire travel fee if you help us schedule one of our programs in a nearby school or library.

For your convenience:

  • Each school can be invoiced separately
  • Schools do not need to be in the same district, even if they are sharing a day, as long as they are nearby.
  • We can assist you with locating other schools in your area. Program sharing helps fill the minimum numbers of days necessary for the waiving of the mileage fee.
  • If you want to be added to our e-mail list, even if you aren't sure about when or if you want to book something, let us know and we can keep you in the loop!

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

After School Programs are $250. These events are a single performance given after school dismisses but before 6 pm. Your choice of program may be limited by what program(s) were presented during the day. This option is also limited by where a performer will be during the day. An after school event can only be booked AFTER a full or half-day has been booked on that date in your area.

EVENING PROGRAMS

Evening Programs are a great way to promote book fairs, award programs, reward programs, and a guaranteed way to increase parent involvement in the PTA/PTO. However, for maximum impact and effectiveness the program should be scheduled on the same day as a day time program. Evening programs are $250. The evening program will ALWAYS be different from what was presented at YOUR school during the day unless you specifically request otherwise.

LIBRARY PROGRAMS

Summer Library Programs are themed each year according to the State Library Reading program. All our programs are interactive, engaging, laugh-out-loud fun, and they always encourage the kids to READ! Summer library programs usually book up 12 months in advance. There are also some stipulations. For example, during the summer our presenters perform ONLY the show that is themed according to the State Library. If you want a different show, you may have to adjust the date of the program. The first presentation at a given location during the summer is $250, each additional program at the same location, same show, back-to-back is just $150. Library programs are only available during the school year on weekends, evenings and holidays (i.e. when school is not in session).

TRAVEL FEES

Based from San Jose, California

We've made travel and mileage so simple that you'll almost enjoy paying it! If that wasn't good enough news, you'll be happy to learn that over 90% of our clients NEVER pay mileage or travel expenses! That's right. Our mileage and travel rates are grouped together and determined at a flat rate (much lower than you would pay on a per-mile basis plus per diem) and then we give you a very simple way to opt out of paying any mileage and travel expense at all.

  • 0-50 mile radius: No mileage or travel fees
  • 51-100 mile radius: $75 fee + min. of full-day booking (fee waived with 2+ full-day bookings)
  • 101-150 mile radius: $200 fee + min. of 2 full-day bookings (fee waived with 3+ full-day bookings)
  • 151+ mile radius: $325 fee + min. of 3 full-day bookings (fee waived with 4+ full-day bookings)

Remember, minimum bookings do not have to come from the same school or even the same school district but they need to be within 40 minutes of each other.
