PLEASE LOOK OVER THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS SO THAT EVERYTHING CAN RUN SMOOTHLY ON THE DAY OF THE SHOW:
1. TRAVEL DIRECTIONS
We need you to send us TRAVEL DIRECTIONS from the nearest main roadway. A marked optional map would be useful. Send the travel directions to the address above so that we receive them at least a week before the performance.
Please note that we will arrive 90 minutes before the show to set up. Please make sure that we have access to the performing area at that time, and through the end of the strike, which takes an hour after the show.
3. LOAD IN
This is a large show that travels in 10 trunks and giant cases. We therefore require STREET LEVEL LOADING into the performing area so that the equipment can be rolled in on a dolly.
We will want to use the nearest access from the van into the performing area, so please make sure that you can open those doors when we arrive.
The Puppeteers will not carry any equipment up any stairs. If we can not get access to the performing area in this manner, then you will be required to move the cases to and from the van to the performing area.
Even when there is street level loading, we greatly appreciate any assistance in moving the show.
4. SOUND AND LIGHTING
We carry our own sound and lighting systems, which is adequate for most halls. If you have any built in sound or lighting equipment, we may want to utilize it, so please have access to it. We will need reasonable access to electricity.
You are responsible for providing safe parking for our van while we are at your site. Please have any necessary parking permits made out and either sent to us with the directions, or available upon our arrival.
We will require a men's and women's bathroom, that are for adults only. These rooms must have a sink, soap, and towels. We will need a private place to change into our costumes, which can be these bathrooms, or other rooms that are suitable.
Please call 718-972-5723 if you have any questions.
These requirements represent ideal performing conditions. Please let us know in advance if you cannot provide any of the above, and we will try to be as flexible as we can.
PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND US TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to providing you with a very special event for your children.
