RESIDENTIAL VENUE

So your event will be hosted in a residential home.  That’s great news!  We love to perform in cozy intimate areas.  We’ve had our best performances there.  When the weather is right, we can do these parties outside as well since the added space would be most welcomed.  If your party is outside, we ask that  if the temperature is above 30 degrees Celsius with the humidity, that your party be indoors.  Due to the nature of our costumes, we cannot risk dehydration or sunstroke.  Please keep your attention on the temperature as our performers can refuse to work in extremely hot  temperatures OR in direct sun exposure.  If the temperature is right and it’s a sunny day, please have appropriate sun shade for our performers.  ie: trees / awnings.

It’s important to ensure you provide us with everything outlined below…

First Contact Person:

Our performers will arrive in regular street clothes approximately 30-40 minutes before your start time to set up for your party and get changed.  Please have someone available for us to meet at the entrance and be prepared to get a call from us at the contact number you provided on the booking form.  We may need assistance in finding your location.

Parking:

Please ensure there is a parking spot available for us to unload our equipment close to your entrance.  We do not want to park on the road and lug our costumes and props further then necessary.

Change Room

NOTE: Due to restrictions put in place, our performers will now come dressed to your venue but may need to put on additional costume accessories or masks in a room provided by you.

We like a room that is secluded to us and we can keep our personal belongings in like street clothes and wallets so it must be secure.  We also would like a mirror in the room if possible.  Usually this is the master bedroom or another bedroom that is accommodating.  We may also use a living room area if your party area is somewhere else.

NOTE: for hygiene reasons, our performers do not change in washrooms.  We also have very expensive costumes and equipment and do not want to risk them being stolen or damaged by the environment.

 Party Room Setup

We find that this is where most people have questions for us or have no idea on how to set up their room.  It’s really quite easy.  If you’ve ever been to a live theatre, you always have the same setup.   Our performers will need access to your party / stage area for music / prop setup and will work out the overall room logistics with you such as:

  • performers entrance into the stage

  • front stage for viewing the show and clearing space for the performers

  • front seating for the main audience

  • back and side seating for the audience

In a residential home, you should always make your front stage where the performers will be entering from the change room your provide.  The performers will enter through a door or entrance way directly into the stage area.  A living room, unfinished basement or large yard area works well.  Try to make the front stage at least a 5X10 area if possible.  The main audience (children) will be seated directly in front of the stage area (on chairs or on the floor) facing the stage.  Adults can hang out along the sides or behind the children.  Our parties are very fun for both children and adults so it would be great if you could have your adults directly in the crowd too.

NOTE: Keep in mind that the front stage area should have an electrical outlet that is accessible for us to plug in our music player.  If one is not in the general area, please have an extension cord available for us to use so we can access it.

[warning]

See this floor plan diagram for a common setup.  Your setup may be a little different because of the room size so just try to get the general layout with the performers entrance onto the stage area and audience seating.
