Field Trip FAQs
Are Parents, teachers, bus driver, etc. FREE?
Tickets are $6.75 each and every 10th ticket is free. For example, book 50 seats and 5 of those are free of charge, so you pay for 45 seats. Every person who plans on attending the production MUST be included in the TOTAL number of seats ordered. We only charge you for nine of every ten tickets you order. How you use your free tickets is up to you. Please note that individual tickets not ordered through the school (parents, for example) will be sold at full price and are not guaranteed to be seated with the school group.
