What does a minimum booking mean?

LIVE SHOWS:  A minimum booking means that there is a basic fixed price for a LIVE performance; which permits a maximum of 120 people into the show.

If there are more than 120 audience members attending a show each person pays for a ticket. If there are less than 120 people attending a show usually the minimum payment rule applies. If you have less than 120 pupils, but still want a show(s) contact us and we will try to find a solution together. Any special arrangements are made at the organizers discretion.

In the case of audiences of more than 120 people we strongly advise to register 5% less than you actually expect to attend to allow for absentees due to sickness, etc. The audience will be counted as they enter the auditorium and any extras will be charged the ticket price of the booking. If there are less people attending you will be recompensed with the ticket money up to 5% of the booking sum and as long as it is not less than the fixed minimum booking price.

For details of prices please contact our office and we will send you all the booking information including prices, possible performance dates, details of the shows in our current repertoire and the booking form.

 

ONLINE SHOWS: A minimum of 28 people per ONLINE show is necessary for booking. There is really no limit to how many people can view a show. Contact today to discuss matters.

What if people are sick/absent?

How many people can take part in a theatre performance/workshop?

LIVE SHOWS: The amount of people who can attend a performance is rather determined by the performance venue than by the theatre. We are equipped with head-set microphones to ensure that we are audible in all sized venues, so for us the more the merrier. If however, the performance space restricts audience numbers we can discuss the option of performing a show(s) several times to accommodate this problem. The important issue is communicate with each other to find a solution together.

Who writes the plays?

All of our plays are written and performed by native English speakers, as this is the only way to come into contact with the authentic language.

As teaching professionals you know that it is important to have contact with native English speakers and the “real” living language to further develop language skills. To achieve this we place great importance on the fact that our plays are written and performed by native English speakers. Our professional playwrights and actors provide an authentic experience with the English language.

A large number of plays are written by Kristi-Anne Seth, the Producer and Artistic Director of The Phoenix Theatre; but we also have guest writers contributing to our lively and vibrant repertoire of plays.

Therefore, as a form of motivation, an affirmation of language skills already learnt or simply a way to have fun in English we are the perfect educational theatre group for you. Our motto being “The Art of Language Learning”.
