As all venues are of different capacity, we endeavour to tailor all performance fees to make them affordable for each engagement while securing the fairest fees for our performers - therefore all fees are quoted only upon application.

Discounts can be negotiated for performances at educational establishments when booked with workshops.

PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT BOX OFFICE SPLIT OFFERS IN VENUES WITH WHICH WE HAVE A PROVEN TRACK RECORD.

GENERAL DOMESTIC CONDITIONS

  • ALL CHARGES ARE VATABLE at the prevailing rate.
  • For venues of less than 125 seats, each performance carries a straight fee.
  • FEES: For venues over 125 seats, the fee will ALWAYS be quoted against a percentage of the box office takings, the greater being payable. The split percentage we accept is based on the "risk" being accepted by us. The lower the negotiated guarantee, the greater the split percentage.
  • Fees are reduced when two or more performances are booked at the same venue or booked with workshops.
  • Royalties are always included in the basic fee when set against a box office split in venues less than 200 seats. If a fixed guarantee is agreed, the royalty is sometimes payable before the guarantee @ 10% of the box office takings. These are generally added to the agreed split percentage in venues above 200 seats.
  • Travel costs are chargeable @ £0.40 per mile on performances for return trips over 40 miles from base or single trips where the tour is ongoing. These can be built into the fee or invoiced separately.

Technical Requirements - see individual show tek listings

All shows benefit from a fully programmable lighting system although all shows are largely uncomplicated. Programmable lighting is important for consistency of reproduction and saving rehearsal time. A good sound system is required. When lighting is rigged and patched in advance, set-up and rehearsal can take less than 4 hours. Lighting diagrams and technical requirements are downloadable from the show pages on this site and hard copies will be provided with contracts.

Unless arranged otherwise, all shows use the in house technicians, but generally for international gigs, they travel with one Company Stage Manager/Technician who can call the shows and run the sound effects. One additional experienced English speaking/reading lighting technician required on site at each venue to rig, set-up and run the lighting. Pack-in/Bump-in should be around Noon on the day of a performance unless arranged otherwise.

Where further technical expertise is required, we may also travel with an additional lighting technician who can supervise and rig the primary set-up and run the lights during the performance. (* See Fees above)


Publicity Material Provided

Most publicity information can be downloaded from this website.

Publication quality images are downloadable from this site. Hard copy images are supplied only if necessary for larger reproduction if necessary. Photographs are not provided in bulk for international presentations.

Pre-designed artwork, example posters, leaflets, programme designs may emailed upon request (prepared in adobe PDF). Press releases, company and biographical information and review excerpts can also be provided in PDF format where the information is not awavilable from this website.
