Now Scheduling Spring 2018 Performances

We are now scheduling performances for March 10 – April 30.

Deadline to schedule a performance is November 1, 2017.  Please see calendar below for availability.

Performances will include three tales:

  • The Three Billy Goats Gruff (AD/HD)

  • Pinocchio (trauma)
  • King Midas (anxiety)

Performance fee within Minnesota is $1000. If the site is outside of the Twin Cities, please add $1/mile.  We are also available to perform outside of Minnesota.  Please contact Matt Jenson at mjenson@macmh.org for rates and scheduling.

Sample performance day schedule

The performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.  It is preceded by a brief introduction about mental health and is followed by a Question and Answer session with the cast.  The entire event lasts 55 – 60 minutes

As you are planning your schedule, please note that we are not able to leave the Twin Cities before 7:45 AM.  Please allow 90 minutes before the performance for set-up and a spacing rehearsal.

9:00 AM     Arrive at location, set up
10:30 AM   Performance #1
11:30 AM    Pack up sets and costumes
Noon           Depart

We are able to do up to two performances in one day ($1000/per performance).  If it is at two different schools and the performances are during the school day, then the two locations should be no further than 20 minutes apart.

Performance Space Requirements

The sets of  both Fidgety Fairy Tales productions are designed to be easily transportable and self-contained.  An official theatre space is not necessary.

An open space such as a lunch room, gym, or multi-purpose room is acceptable.  Ideally the performance space should be at least 16′ deep and 20′ wide (although we have performed in smaller spaces when necessary).

We do not require a “backstage area” because our backdrop creates a space behind which the actors can make quick changes.  The cast will need to change into their costumes before the show and can do that in a nearby room or set of restrooms.

Audience Set Up

Audience sizes have ranged from 100 – 400.  Depending on the acoustics of your space, the ideal audience size has been 150 – 200.

If the performance space is not higher than the audience space, then we suggest that the audience sit on the floor (if kids) or in chairs (if families).
