HOW TO BOOK A PROGRAM
Look over our Program Guide or website or attend our annual Arts Education Showcase and select the program best suited for your grades or events. We recommend that you consult with the principal and the teachers with classes attending the program for suggestions. Morris Arts education staff is also available for consultation to make suggestions based on your school’s interests.
IDENTIFY AVAILABLE DATES AND TIMES
Check the school’s master calendar and choose at least three open dates. Decide how many performances are needed. If you have multiple performances on the same day, please allow 15 minutes between performances to allow for setup and to assemble the next group of students.
SCHEDULE YOUR PROGRAMS
Contact the artist directly to book the shows you have selected. The artist will send you the necessary paperwork along with a study guide, technical requirements and payment procedure for the program you have selected. Please submit any necessary district, insurance or hold harmless forms early to the artists for timely processing.
Once a date has been selected and confirmed with the artist, make sure your performances are on the school’s master calendar. Our artists are in heavy demand and it may be difficult to reschedule them if a conflict develops.
Prepare your students to view the performance with an introductory lesson from the study guide provided by the artist. Discuss proper behavior and etiquette for viewing a live performance.
Plan to meet the artist before the first performance to get acquainted and help them find the equipment, dressing and performance area at your school. Make sure your students are in their seats and ready to view the performance at the starting time. Enjoy the show!
