We are currently accepting bookings for the 2015/2106 school year of our interactive puppet presentations:
Each presentation (depending on age category) is between 30 – 45 minutes in length and incorporates 2 – 3 segments with an interactive portion in between each segment and at the end. We have added something new this year. To reinforce the material taught in each program, every topic has relevant activity sheets for the children, and teacher packets with follow up material for the adults. The teachers can use the information and activities contained in the teacher packets to continue educating their class after the puppet program has ended. In addition to the activity sheets, the children are also given letterforms on which they are asked to write or draw a picture of what they liked about the program, and most importantly, to determine an understanding of the subject matter and encourage further discussions. All evaluation forms and letters are collected by the teachers and returned to our office. To keep the presentations interactive, we usually limit audience sizes to no more than 100 students per presentation.
How much does each presentation cost?
A $75 / day performance fee is requested to help cover the cost of our travel expenses. We never say NO to a booking request for lack of funding, however honorariums are welcomed.
As we are a not-for-profit organization, we rely heavily on contributions and donations in order that we may continue to empower young people to make smarter and kinder choices, and further enable schools and communities to become a safer place to live, learn and play.
