CHANGES TO BOOKINGS
The teacher who initiated the booking must make any changes to the order, which needs to be made directly to a KTYP staff member responsible for Education Performance bookings. Bookings may be reduced by no more than 50% of your original order, and therefore the school and/or individual who made the booking is financially responsible for providing a minimum payment of 50% regardless of the number of students that actually attend the performance. Reductions in the number of individuals attending must be made no less than 2 weeks before the date of your performance. We will not accept reductions in numbers after this time and the school or individual who made the booking is responsible for providing payment for the number of purchased tickets on the invoice.
If on the day of your performance there are absent students, a credit will be applied to your schools account. A maximum credit of 5 students per production can be credited. Please note, credits are offered for absentee students only and not adult or supervisor tickets.
Teachers should plan to have their groups at the theatre 25-30 minutes prior to the start time of the show. Please select one teacher in advance to check-in with a KTYP Associate outside of the theatre upon arrival on performance day. Please have your entire group line up in a single line outside of the theatre. Schools will only be seated once their entire group has arrived. Once a full group has arrived, you will be ushered into the theatre by KTYP or RMTS staff.
Latecomers will only be seated when and if there is an appropriate break in the show. There is not guaranteed seating of latecomers. In the case of unexpected delays in arrival time, please call Kaleidoscope at 250.383.8124 in inform us of your estimated time of arrival.
