Once you have made your online application, a team member will be in touch within 1 business day and send you an invoice as well as access to the Teacher’s Kit and updated script.

What if our booking numbers change- will we be able to get a refund?:

Unfortunately, refunds cannot be made once final payment is received. However, prior to payment going through, we are able to send updated invoices.

Will we be able to ask questions of the performers and creative team?

You will be given access to an online portal where you and your students can post questions to the creative team and cast. These questions and answers will be visible to all other school groups. Please do not send individual emails requesting answers to questions. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to individual emails with creative questions about the performances. Also, all information given out needs to be accessible to all other students in Victoria so that any assessments are fair and even.

What happens if it rains?

Generally, performances go ahead in light to moderate rain. Performances are only cancelled if it is unsafe for the performance to proceed, and when school groups are present we do factor this into our decision making and try to push on with the show wherever possible. For school groups, we can arrange an exchange of tickets or a full refund if a show is cancelled.
