Prologue FAQ’s

What is the school responsible for on the performance day? 2017-05-30T14:15:53+00:00
  • Ensuring the technical information sheet has been read and followed.
  • Making sure someone is on hand to greet the performers upon their arrival at the school to make them feel welcome. Performers really appreciate the special welcome shown by providing juice or coffee and muffins.
  • Consulting with the company stage manager or performers upon arrival about audience size and grade level, seating and any special requirements.
  • Making sure that your students and staff know audience etiquette. A quiet and attentive audience means that everyone will enjoy the experience.
  • Designating a staff person or student to introduce the performance and to thank the performers at the end of the show.
  • Completing and submitting the Performance Evaluation Form.

I received the Teacher Resource Materials with lyrics but no CD. Should I have received a CD? 2016-04-05T14:00:11+00:00

Not all music artists/companies offer a complimentary CD. Some artists bring their CD’s available for purchase when they perform at your school. Check with a sales representative or under the performance details on the website or in the catalogue for clarification. Complimentary CD’s will be noted where applicable.

What if my school doesn’t have a tuned acoustic piano as requested? 2017-05-30T14:15:53+00:00

Any company requesting a tuned acoustic piano can bring their portable electric piano. If you don’t have an acoustic piano but have a high quality electrical piano to offer, Prologue can communicate this to the artist.

Is the help of students essential to hosting the performance? 2016-04-05T13:58:11+00:00
It is a great experience for interested students to work with the artist or company, under the supervision of a teacher. Loading and unloading sets and props for the performance is a much faster and easier process with student assistance. If this goes against your school health and safety regulations, please ensure Prologue knows this ahead of time so the artists can be notified.

Is the minimum room temperature strictly enforced? 2016-04-05T13:57:19+00:00
Dance artists and companies CANNOT risk injury by performing in a space with a room temperature of less than 21 degrees. If you are concerned your school can’t commit to the room temperature as identified, please contact a sales representative to discuss the situation.

Where will the performance take place? 2017-05-30T14:15:53+00:00
Different artists and companies need different spaces in which to perform, depending on set and other requirements. Read the technical checklist carefully to understand all of the artist’s needs.

Can I include grades that are not indicated as appropriate for the performance? 2016-04-05T13:52:48+00:00
If you want to include a grade level above or below the appropriate range indicated you must make this request with a sale representative before or after you’ve received your contract. It is not advisable to exceed the grade range suggested but it may be possible depending on your students and the performance. Please contact a sales representative for more information.

Can I include a few more students over the maximum? 2016-04-05T13:51:57+00:00

Depending on the type of show and the number of extra students you’d like to include, additional students may be accommodated with the artist’s permission. In this case a fee increase may be applied for each additional student to compensate the artist/company. Please consult a sales representative for more information.

If the audience will be under the maximum is there a discount? 2016-04-05T13:50:26+00:00

Our professional artists are contracted to perform for a fixed rate per performance. For this reason we are not able to discount the price of a performance for small audiences. Consider partnering with a neighbouring school to share the performance and cost.

Does Prologue offer any discounts? 2016-04-05T13:48:17+00:00

A 10% discount is offered for most back-to-back performances in the same location. We offer one price for all Ontario schools and endeavour to keep prices low in order to reach as many young people as possible.
