How To Book With Prologue
If it is the first time you help your school welcome an artist or company, you may not know where to begin. The following is intended to guide you through the process of introducing and planning a “Performing Arts Program” in your school.
Step 1: Introducing a “Performing Arts Program”
- Present the idea to the school council and administration.
- If necessary, survey the parents through the school newsletter or at a special meeting.
- Select a school council or staff member to serve as the “Arts Coordinator”.
- Inform the parents and staff about the “Performing Arts Program” and tell them the benefits to students, the school and the parents. (See Why Book With Prologue?)
- Establish funding for the “Performing Arts Program” with the school council or school administration.
- Begin planning the “Performing Arts Program” calendar in the spring for next season’s performances.
Step 2: The Planning Process
Ideally, the planning process starts at the end of the school year so that by the start of the next year all events are booked and necessary arrangements are in place for first performances.
